The permanent exhibition covers his life in Italy, his work and writing, and also about his private life and shows original documents concerning his life. The second exhibition, which is always a temporary exhibition, often refers to arguments and themes which connect somehow the Italian and German cultures or talks about artists like Max Beckmann, Heinrich Mann and Thomas Mann, Andreu Alfaro, Günter Grass and Johann Gottfried Schadow and their experiences in Italy as well as their examinations of Goethe. The museum owns a library, which includes also the collection of Richard W. Dorn.

The Casa di Goethe, opened in 1997 and is administrated by the Association of Independent Cultural Institutes (AsKI).
