Verona, Italy - Buried deep in Italy, in a little town called Verona, there is a voluntary group of love-letter answering secretaries that promote the legend of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet by responding to thousands of letters pouring in from every country. They offer advice, support, and a listening ear for anyone who needs to talk about love. Here you see letters/posted on a wall.
