ROMEO E GIULIETTA
BY FRANCO ZEFFIRELLI
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Zeffirelli's release of Academy Award nominated film Romeo and Juliet, the Italian Cultural Institute, in collaboration with the Franco Zeffirelli Foundation, presents a pre-Valentine's Day screening of Shakespeare's tale of romance and tragedy.
Two families of Verona, the Montagues and the Capulets, have been feuding with each other for years. Young Romeo Montague goes out with his friends to make trouble at a party the Capulets are hosting, but while there he spies the Capulet's daughter Juliet, and falls hopelessly in love with her. She returns his affections, but they both know that their families will never allow them to follow their hearts.
