Veronaville is one of the three pre-made neighborhoods in The Sims 2 base game. The name of the town comes from Verona, the town of Romeo and Juliet. The town itself is based on a European setting, with a viaduct near the north end and a canal dividing the town into two architecturally different sections, the "English" side, featuring Tudor homes reminiscent of Shakespeare's hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon, and the "Italian" side, featuring Mediterranean villa-style homes of Verona. This divide clearly suits the divide between the two main families, the Capps and the Montys (Ment to represent the Capulets and the Montagues of Romeo and Juliet). The Capps live on the wealthier and more prominent "English" side while the Montys live on the less prominent and more rural "Italian" side. The other family, the Summerdreams, are the neutral family, yet they live on the "English" area of town. Strangely, the Montys are the only family to live on the "Italian" side.

Even though there are just three pre-made families in Veronaville,� the total population including Townies numbers 186 Sims. All of the Sims', streets', and houses' names are based off of Shakespeare's plays. The Summerdreams are from A Midsummer Nights Dream.

Oddly, almost all of the deceased parents of any pre-made Sim in Veronaville died young, in their adult years, unlike the Pleasantview and Strangetown Sims, most of which feature deceased elder Sims. The exceptions to this rule are Contessa Capp (mother to Cordelia, Goneril, Regan, and Kent Capp) and Sprite Gossamer, father to Oberon Summerdream, who both died as elders. Whether this is due to the family feud of the Capps and Montys or something else entirely remains unsolved.

Also, despite the feud beetween the Capps and the Montys, most of the youth seem to be friends or love interests.

[edit] AllusionsEdit

The name and basic premise of Veronaville comes from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, which takes place in Verona, Italy. Other names from this neighborhood derive from other of Shakespeare's plays. See Etymology/Veronaville for more on this.

In The Sims 2: Seasons there is a decoration called "Veronaville Quilting Bee Finalist". This indicates that there is an annual quilting competition in the town.

In The Sims 3, Veronaville is mentioned on notification when a Sim has mastered logic skill. On the notification, it is mentioned that "Such brilliance and mental fortitude hasn't been witnessed since the Late Renaissance of Veronaville!..."

In The Sims 3, Good Sims can donate to a charity called "Veronaville Community Chest". Evil Sims can donate to undermine it.

[edit] Other BuildingsEdit

Other than the homes, there are a few community lots around, such as Veronaville Market and Stratford Strip.
