Maria and Elisabetta are both students in Pisa, Italy. They met shortly after starting school, united by the fact that all their friends kept mistaking them for each other. Because despite coming from completely different parts of the country (Maria from Sicily, Elisabetta from the Rome area), they share an uncanny resemblance, down to their impressive halos of curly brown hair.
Surprisingly, it turns out that having the same face is a perfect icebreaker. The two became fast friends, eventually moving into the same apartment. And now, they can't imagine life apart.
The website Twin Strangers recently profiled the two girls, filming them as they go about their charming Italian lives, and interviewing them about their friendship. Check out the video, and their fantastic accents, below.
Just think—you probably have a doppelganger out there somewhere, just waiting to become your best friend. Or your greatest enemy. But nothing in between.
