English Romantic poet John Keats is buried in the Non-Catholic Cemetery in Rome (also called the Protestant Cemetery).
Keats died in Rome aged 25 in 1821 from tuberculosis. His tombstone does not bear his name but reads:
This grave contains all that was mortal, of a young English poet, who, on his death bed, in the bitterness of his heart, at the malicious power of his enemies, desired these words to be engraven on his tomb stone “Here lies One Whose Name was writ in Water.”

The Emmy Award-winning actor was best known for playing New Jersey crime boss Tony Soprano in HBO’s television series The Sopranos.
