Juliet's birthday (16/09)

On September 16, in the Italian city of Verona, a holiday is celebrated - the birthday of Juliet, the famous Shakespearean heroine of the saddest story in the world.

Although at the time of the events described in the tragedy "Romeo and Juliet" the main character was not yet 14 years old, letters from all lovers addressed to Juliet still come to Verona, asking for advice or parting words in a difficult love situation.

Responding to letters from a girl from the Club di Giulietta, founded in 1972 by Giulio Tamassia. Every year the club receives about 5,000 letters, including by e-mail. Not a single message goes unanswered.
