Romeo and Juliet: setting
Read the text below and find the seven mistakes in it.

The play is set in the Italian city of Mantua because Italians were popularly considered violent and passionate and this charmed the English at that time. From the point of view of the political context, the play represents the struggles between two important families, the Capulets and Montagues, who want to control the country. That is why most of the action takes place indoors – in the orchard where Romeo and Juliet finally declare their love, on the famous balcony, in the squares where the fights occur, in the tomb where the lovers meet.
