Verona, Shakespeare, Roméo and Juliet
Shakespeare Shakespeare did not set his play Romeo and Juliet in Verona just because he loved the town: the play is based on a true story . A plaque on the tomb of Juliet, which is just outside the walls of the city, tells the story of star-crossed lovers on which Shakespeare based his work.
The story was already three centuries old when Shakespeare adapted it. In the thirteenth century , the city was the battleground of a feud between two rival families , the Montecchi and Capuleti, each with its own territory and sphere of influence within the city. Today , the residence of Montecchi , “The House of Romeo ” is a building in the appearance of a fortress in which the public cannot enter. The home of Capuletti , ” Juliet’s House ” is pretty close , just a few minutes walk away, and much more accessible .
