New curator at Romeís Keats-Shelley House

Dr Giuseppe Albano is to assume the post of curator of Rome's Keats-Shelley House at the foot of the Spanish Steps from 28 November.

A lecturer and researcher at the British Museum and the Wallace Collection in London, Albano received his early education in Scotland and his PhD from Cambridge University for his research on Victorian poets. He replaces Catherine Payling who left the position at the end of July on her marriage.

Albano has an extensive academic background in English and Scottish poetry and the Romantic poets although he does not have the same administrative and accountancy experience that his precedessor brought to the job.

In her 14 years at the Keats-Shelley House Payling increased the number of visitors each year, instigated a new outreach programmes to Romeís English-speaking and Italian schools and universities, added to the collection of rare books and organised exhibitions and events to mark the museumís centenary.

Prior to her departure she opened a museum shop on the first floor of the premises, and also managed to place the institution on a sound financial footing for the first time in its 100-year history.
