Cappuccino Viennese or so they say


Buongiorno how are you today

Well for those of you have follow me on twitter you will know that the last 10 days I have been saying “buongiorno” alot as I am in Italy. It was kind of last-minute thing with work I have come over to Vicneza to witness the factory acceptance of some gas equipment but that is by the by.

While it is a bit of a bummer this close to Christmas to have to fly to a different country and love out of a suit case. It has given me the opportunity to tick off one of the 5 landmarks in Challenge #6 of the 40 before 40.


Buongiorno and Juilet’s boob

Working away sometime has its perks and this trip has been one of these times. Due to flight scheduling issues I had a free day on Thursday so I used this day to visit the city of Verona.

Two households, both alike in dignity,

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

Which some of you may be aware was the town in which Shakespear’s lovers Romeo & Juliet lived.

What I was not aware of until I visited Verona was that there were actually two families in Verona the Del Capello and the Montecchi and it is believe that the story is loosely based around these two families.

In the Del Capello house the Casa di Giulietta is found, this is now a museum to all things Romeo & Juliet and is also home to the Juliet Club which hosts the Secretaries of Juliet.

In the Court yard of this museum is a bronze statue of Juliet and tradition states that it is good luck to rub Juliet’s right breast. As you can see from the photo I did and ticket off one of my 5 landmarks

  • Landmark = Statue of Juliet
  • City = Verona
  • Country = Italy.

I now wish you Buongirono and an enjoyable rest of your day.
