While living in Rome, Goethe wrote “This place on earth where the history of the world revives, and where I count to be born a second time, to be truly risen again on the day I set foot in Rome.” So, there you have an explanation and understanding for La Scelta di Goethe, which literally translates to “Goethe’s Choice”.
