Background: People write letters to 'Santa Claus - North Pole', they write letters to ' Sherlock Holmos-Baker Street, London'-they write, even to Juliet, Shakespeare's immortal heroine, at Verona, Italy.
An as there are people in Denmark who reply each year on behalf of St. Nicholas, an old Italian-Mr. Ettore Solimani-has, for the past 20 years taken it upon himself to answer all the would-be suitors of Juliet.
Surrounding his exact duties in an aura of mystery, this self-styled 'Custodian of Juliet's Tomb' has been one of the world's strangest 'private secretary'. But now, at 65, he has decided who time has come to retire....and to write a book of memoirs.
