Carlotti Palace

At the beginning of Corso Cavour is Carlotti Palace: work began around 1666 under the supervision of the architect Prospero Schiavi, commissioned by Gerolamo Carlotti. According to Matteo Bandello, the duel between Romeo and Tybalt took place where this palace stands.

 

 

In his novella 'La sfortunata morte di due infelicissimi amanti che l'uno di veleno e l'altro di dolore morirono, con vari accidenti' (The unfortunate death of two very unhappy lovers, one of which died of poison and the other of grief, with various accidents), Bandello recounts and describes the places in Verona where the various events in the novella took place. 

 

The fight between the Capulets and the Montagues in which Tybalt lost his life, took place right at Carlotti Palace. On the façade of the palace, the Juliet Club has affixed a bas-relief commemorating the episode.
