Our Untold History Tour will take you to the Museum Hendrik Christian Andersen and our Gay-Friendly Tour Guide will let you know all the story behind all the artwork that you will be able to see.
Also, you will know about the story about Andersen and his beloved Henry James, a story that most of the time becomes forgotten.
” Would to God that I could come to Rome and put my hands on you ( oh, how lovingly I put them! )
But this, alas, is hideously impossible”
So, February 9, 1902, the American writer Henry James wrote in one of a number of letters to the sculptor Hendrik Christian Andersen. Therefore no relation with the author of fairy tales!
From Norway, Andersen chose Rome as his home and lived here in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
