Buon San Valentino from Giulietta’s balcony (happy love day)

The courtyard brimmed with visitors and there were dozens of people inscribing their dedications on the walls that line the andito, the passageway that leads from the street to the courtyard (below).

Such a powerful mythology! I hadn’t visited her casa for nearly 30 years but the scene remains unchanged.

Wishing everyone a buon San Valentino and a happy love day (as our girls like to call it)!
