William Shakespeare died in Stradford upon Avon, his hometown, on April 23rd 1616.
After 400 years, his plays and his fame are everlasting.
Deep connoisseur of human soul, attentive and sensitive, he left us immortal masterpieces and unforgettable characters, and deeply influenced the European culture, creating models, narrative structures and archetypes that are still important nowadays.
Some example: the gentle love between Romeo and Juliet, the marriage of power and blood of Macbeth's, the Otello's obsessive jealousy or Hamlet's despair.
