Romeo and Juliet are the official mascots of the World Fencing Championships Junior and Cadets Verona 2018.

The Champions, Valerio Aspromonte and Rossella Fiamingo, official testimonials of the Event, will act the part of this historical characters.

From an idea of the President Luca Campedelli and the Organizing Committee, the mascots represent a unique piece realized by the artist-sculptor, Ernesto Panno, from an initial design of the graphic visual designer, Giulio Tozzi.

The models, entirely handmade, are manufactured in modeling clay and reproduced in polyurethane resin by a silicone rubber cast. The colouring, however, is done by airbrush and brush.

Romeo and Juliet in fencing uniform will be done to all the medalists of Verona 2018.
