The great library (there are two more rooms and a corridor, and storerooms (plural) with books too) at the Swedish Institute in Rome. If you are there as a researcher you get assigned your own desk for the whole stay (mine is the one in the front row, to the left).

The institute is called Istituto Svedese di studi classici a Roma in Italian - which sums it up very well. It is for academic studies in art, history and archaeology of Antiquity, with both a well filled library and work space for archaeologists - and rooms available for for those there doing research. I was staying there both to do my own work and working as a secretary for my father-in-law for a few weeks.
