Italy: Verona

Last Saturday I got four postcards: one from Italy, one from Germany, one from Ireland and one from Australia.

The card from Italy shows various views of Verona. Verona is a city in the Italian region of Veneto. It is the setting of three plays by William Shakespeare including Romeo and Juliet. The City of Verona is since 2000 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The Battle of Vittorio Veneto was fought between the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Italy between the 24th October and the 3rd November 1918. It ended with a disastrous Austro-Hungarian defeat and thus marked the end of the war on the Italian Front, secured the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and sealed the end of the Italian unification. On 3rd November the Armistice of Villa Giusti was signed.

Thank You very much Giulia!
