Balconies!

In this episode of Histories of the Unexpected, James and Sam explore the unexpected history of BALCONIES, which is all about propaganda and politics, the assassination of Martin Luther King, eavesdropping on the royal family, it’s about Churchill, Hitler and Mussolini, the Globe Theatre (and the Lord’s Room), popular misconceptions about Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, and of course it’s about the Italian spirit of community during lockdown and the global COVID-19 crisis!
