VERONA (Italy): art, history, literature.

Now I want to tell you about Verona, one of the most beautiful Italian cities.

VERONA


[IMG]http://i28.************/k0lv9e.png[/IMG]

Verona stands in the Veneto Region, 114 km. (70 miles) far from Venice, and has about 264.000 inhabitants.
It is one of the main tourist destinations in north-eastern Italy, thanks to its artistic heritage, several annual fairs, shows and operas, such as the lyrical season in the Arena, the ancient amphitheatre built by the Romans; the city is the location of “Romeo and Juliet” by W. Shakespeare.

[IMG]http://i32.************/5akxut.png[/IMG]

Verona owes its historical and economical importance to its geographical location, in a loop of the River Adige near Lake Garda. It was founded in the 1st century B.C. and particularly flourished under the rule of the Scaliger family in the Middle Age and as part of the Republic of Venice from the 15th to 18th century. Verona has preserved a remarkable number of monuments from antiquity, the medieval and Renaissance periods, and represents an outstanding example of a military stronghold.

It is inscripted on World Heritage List:
Criterion ii : In its urban structure and its architecture, Verona is an outstanding example of a town that has developed progressively and uninterruptedly over two thousand years, incorporating artistic elements of the highest quality from each succeeding period.
Criterion iv : Verona represents in an exceptional way the concept of the fortified town at several seminal stages of European history.”

Here the link to Wikipedia with info about the city:

I hope you will enjoy the show.

Piazza Bra: the vibrant heart of the city. In this square you can find the Arena, the Roman amphitheatre, perhaps the most beautiful open air opera theatre in the world.

Tons of pix? Are you sure?
There'd be a lot to post about Verona (and the Lake Garda), but... what about Romeo and Juliet?

Some pics of Capulets' house with Juliet's balcony:

For me Piazza dei Signori, also called Piazza Dante, is the most beautiful and elegant square in Verona, a precious mix of medieval and Renaissance architecture: here you can find the Palazzo della Ragione (the medieval council palace) with its courtyard, the Scala della Ragione (stairs) and the Torre dei Lamberti, the Loggia del Consiglio, the Arche Scaligere (the Gothic Scaliger Tombs).

Piazza dei Signori is linked to Piazza delle Erbe by a sort of arch.
In the next post, some pics of this gorgeous place.
