Mantua is the capital of Lombardy, in central northern Italy. It is the city to which Romeo was banished in Shakespeare’s famous tale, after Romeo murdered Juliet’s cousin Tybalt and the Prince of Verona expelled him. Aside from the fact that his beloved Juliet was not there with him, Romeo couldn’t have ended up in a better place. Since the 13th century Mantua had been free of the rule of Rome, and had become prosperous and artistically rich.
