📚 Matera è una straordinaria città del Sud Italia che può essere definita uno “spettacolo a cielo aperto”. Il centro urbano, infatti, si è sviluppato attorno a grotte naturali scavate nella roccia.
La sua particolare conformazione la rende uno scenario incantato, tanto da essere paragonata ad un bellissimo presepe.
Niente può essere più intrigante per un turista come visitare questo luogo di fascino indescrivibile, quasi da set cinematografico. Anzi, ha proprio costituito lo sfondo alla scene di numerosi film. Mel Gibson la scelse per girare scene del film “The Passion”. Pier Paolo Pasolini l’ha considerata set ideale per “Il Vangelo secondo Matteo”.

📚 Matera is an amazing city in Southern Italy that can be called an “open-air show”. The urban centre, in fact, developed around natural caves carved into the rock.
Its particular shape makes it an enchanted scenery, so much that it is compared to a beautiful nativity scene.
Nothing can be more intriguing for a tourist than visiting this charming place, almost like a movie set. Indeed, it was the backdrop for scenes in several films. Mel Gibson chose Matera to shoot scenes from the film movie “The Passion”. Pier Paolo Pasolini considered it the ideal set for “The Gospel according to Matthew”.

Time for the touristy bit of Verona, Italy – but so worth it! Juliet’s house!
Ok, so we all know the story of Romeo and Juliet which was written by Englishman William Shakespeare and first published in 1597. For those who need a recap, the story is about a long ongoing quarrel between the Capulet and Montague families (who really did exist). Romeo (who was in the Montague family) and Juliet (in the Capulet family) meet for the first time when he goes to a ball at Juliet’s father’s house. The two fell in love very quickly but because of the two families, their love is going to be doomed.
Straight after the ball and Romeo being all loved up, he goes to the Capulet garden and overhear’s Juliet on her balcony who was saying rather lovely things about the guys she met. Then the famous balcony scene happened, Romeo declaring his love and vows to marry each other the next day! (So quick, it must be young love!). Then of course death came along later in the story but I don’t want to be a spoiler.
However it is the balcony scene location which Verona has become famous for. But how? Ok, so in the book Shakespeare’s described some of the settings brilliantly and a lot of details. Most of the settings in the book is based on Verona. However, the 13th century house with the balcony, why here? Ok, I try my best to describe (and I had to do some research afterwards as I was very interested in this subject). The house belonged to the Dal Capello family (also known as the Cappelletti) and this name was similar to Juliet’s family name, the Capulets. Simple! But it doesn’t stop there, the most convenient fact to all of this is that there is a small balcony overlooking the small courtyard.
