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 lockdown period in the country.
Paola and Michele were part of a community concert thrown in their block where neighbours stood out 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, the lawyer’s 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 till around 3am.
After their conversation, Michele wrote Paola’s name on a huge banner and hang it outside his house 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.
