“In questo convento di S. Giovanni Battista G.G. Lord Byron il 22 gennaio 1821 poneva educanda sua figlia Allegra. La visitava nell’agosto P.B. Shelley trovandola bella e felice non presago che il 20 aprile seguente morte l’avrebbe rapita di 5 anni e 3 mesi al bramoso affetto del grande genitore”. (‘In this convent of S.

During the month of August, Shelley visited Allegra and found her healthy and happy, but the following 20th of April she unexpectedly died at the young age of five years and three months’).
The memorial stone celebrates the brief staying of Allegra, Lord Byron’s daughter, in Bagnacavallo, at the time when the poet had an affair in Ravenna with the countess Teresa Guiccioli.
