- After realising he had fallen head-over-heels for his neighbour, the 38-year-old man held a banner with Paola's name written on it outside his apartment
An Italian couple who met in what would be termed as a Shakespearean coincidence is set to walk down the aisle. The pair first started interacting when they were standing on their balconies during the lockdown period in their country.
Paola and Michele were part of a community concert thrown in their block where neighbours stood outside of their houses and held a performance while social distancing. Paola was the one who first saw Michele and felt like their souls immediately intertwined.
At that time, her sister was playing the violin and she was in charge of making sure the sound was top notch. Michele, who is 38 years old, made the first move and sniffed through Instagram till he found his wonder woman’s account.
He followed Paola and spoke to her through the night until around 3am. After their conversation, Michele wrote Paola’s name on a huge banner to hang outside his house in order to profess his love for the lady he could not stop thinking about.
The pair told The Times they are already planning their wedding and hope to hold it in the large roof terrace of Michele’s apartment building.
