Gala Giulietta and Romeo
The Romeo and Juliet Gala Evening takes place in the splendid setting of Piazza delle Erbe in Verona, the city of love.
The event is being promoted by the Municipality of Verona in collaboration with Verona Chamber of Commerce, AGSM, Amia, Verona Committee and the Restaurateurs, Bakers and Breadmakers' Associations.
“After the huge success of the previous Romeo and Juliet Gala Evenings in Piazza Erbe and the Opera Gala Evening in Piazza Bra", said Councillor Corsi, "we really wanted to repeat the evening, with a view to promoting the city’s food, wine and restaurants, offering a menu of traditional local dishes and wines from the Verona area. Our thanks go to all the associations who have made this event possible through a major amount of teamwork.”
Entertainment for the Gala Evening includes enactment of Romeo and Juliet's kiss in period costume and music from the Big Band Jazz Set Orchestra.
Thanks to the commitment of the Veronese restaurateurs, the gastronomic and cultural event offers guests the chance to sample the local flavours of Veneto tradition. The restaurants are contributing to the development of food and tourism in Verona with their organizational and logistic commitment.
