The Juliet Club (culture and tradition)

Hi guys! :grinning: since it’s almost Valentine’s Day :heartpulse: and I live in the city of Verona, city of love, famous for William Shakespeare’s tragedy and one of the most famous and popular love stories in the world, Romeo and Juliet, I wanted to share with you this phenomenon called "The Juliet Club".
The Juliet Club :love_letter: was born in Verona in 1972 from an idea of Giulio Tamassia and a group of artists and intellectuals united by the passion for the Shakespearean legend.
The Club of Juliet has been dealing with Juliet’s mail for many years.
Addressed to “Juliet, Verona” thousands of letters, written in every language :earth_americas:, arrive from all over the world and a team of volunteers reads, answers and preserves all the messages.
Unfortunately, these are very often sad letters so it takes tact and gentleness for the volunteers of the Juliet Club to deal with the sadness of these letters. :broken_heart:
