The tragic story of Romeo and Juliet is a legend, nobody can tell if the two unlucky lovers of Verona ever lived. Nevertheless, like in every legend, there are many elements of the story that have references to real places and historical facts of Verona

Romeo and Juliet
by William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Romeo and Juliet is perhaps the most famous of Shakespeare’s plays and is thought to be the most famous love story in Western history. It concerns the fate of two very young lovers who would do anything to be together.

The Montagues and the Capulets of Verona, Italy, are in the midst of a long-standing feud when Romeo Montague drops in on a masquerade party at the Capulets’. While there he meets and woos the daughter of the house, Juliet. She likewise returns his passion, and their secret meeting later that night on her bedroom balcony begins a series of tragic events that no one could have foretold.




1. W. Shakespeare

2. The bronze statue of Juliet in the courtyard of La casa di Giulietta (Juliet's House) was made by the sculptor Nereo Costantini.

3. Tomba di Giulietta (Juliet's Tomb) - the place where, supposedly, the lovers of Shakespeare's play got married and where they died together.

4. The balcony scene - At the back of the Cloister of Juliet's tomb is a bronze frieze of 10 panels depicting the story of Romeo and Juliet. It is the work of the artist Sergio Pasetto .

a legend said if you brush Juliet's bosom you'll be happy with your love, so the poor statue is hyper polished at a bosom!... but I don't understand why they choose the right one and not the left from the heart!? ☺
