Citalia, the leading Italian specialist, is offering its customers the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Shakespeare’s famous lovers. This Friday, 11 October, sees the release of a new British film adaption of the classic Romeo and Juliet love story. The 2013 remake of William Shakespeare’s famous romantic tragedy is expected to be a box office hit.

Unlike previous film adaptations, this version does not use Shakespeare’s traditional dialogue, instead using modern English language. Still following the play’s original story line, viewers can expect to see the focus on the Montague and Capulet families who are sworn enemies.
