The House of Giulietta
The current House of Juliet in Verona is a medieval building located in Via Cappello and it is not so far from the central squire Piazza delle Erbe.
Juliet's House in the fourteenth century became a property of the family Capello and appears to have been a pharmacy still at the end of the fifteenth century.
From the seventeenth to the nineteenth century the house became a hotel with very poor quality. From this period is dated only the gate tower that came from the thirteenth century. Then the house have passed the numerous transformations including other buildings facing the courtyard.
The present appearance of the house and adjoining building (born to host the foyer of the Teatro Nuovo) was modeled between 1937-1940 (under the direction of Antonio Avena) through a series of imaginative restoration commissioned to recreate the ancient setting Medieval, inspired by American film of 1936, itself inspired by the famous nineteenth-century painting of Hayez.
Even The Balcony of Giulietta (the first it was the fence of a tenement house) was the assemblage of marble remains of the fourteenth century that as recently as 1920 laid at the Museum of Castel Vecchio as stones to be re-used according to the architectural fashion of time.
The House of Giulietta is one of the major attractors for tourists in Verona. Such a focus makes it very crowded the courtyard of the house on which moreover have been opened souvenir shops for tourists. The passage which gives access to the yard is completely covered with graffiti and leaflets to theme of love left by visitors.
