Two teenagers fall madly in love despite their families feuding. When our star crossed lovers can not be together, Juliet takes a sleeping potion. Romeo on discovering her thinks she is dead and takes his own life, only for Juliet to awaken and find him. In despair Juliet in turn takes her own life when she finds Romeo dead.

I was invited to the Palazzo Borghese in Artena last year, and saw the locations of many of the scenes that were filmed there and nearby and I can absolutely guarantee that the notes for the pictures below are correct. Kenneth Parkes.
