Elizabeth Browning and Robert Browning


Not far from the Palace di Bianca Cappello is Piazza San Felice, where the museum of Casa Guidi is located. This was once the residence in which the English poet Elizabeth Browning lived with her husband Robert Browning between 1847 and 1861. The two young lovers, after having secretly married, took refuge in Florence to escape from Elizabeth's father, who was absolutely against the marriage. Browning, who had always been a lover of Italy, wrote his most famous work there, entitled "Casa Guidi windows", where he expressed his fervent patriotism in support of the Italian unification movement of the nineteenth century. Elizabeth Browning died in Florence in 1861, at the age of 54. Her body is buried in the English Cemetery in Piazzale Donatello.
