The Juliet Club Keeps The Love Story Of Romeo And Juliet Alive

Last night, I was watching a travel show, and I learned about The Juliet Club. Based in Verona, Italy, where Shakespeare’s Juliet Capulet of Romeo and Juliet lived, the group receives thousands of letters every year addressed to Juliet. The notes arrive from around the world and come for a variety of reasons and from a diverse group of people — those looking for love advice, people seeking out Juliet herself, or lonely souls wanting to understand the secret to finding true love. In turn, the members of The Juliet Club reply to each and every Juliet letter they receive. Many of the letters are addressed simply to “Juliet, Verona, Italy,” but they find their way to Verona eventually. As the letters are written in a wide range of languages — from Braille to Chinese — the club seeks out an appropriate volunteer to answer, so no love note goes unresponded to. Sweet, no?
