Juliet's house the most known attraction in Verona

Who doesn't know the story of the greatest lovers in the world, Romeo and Juliet told in one of Shakespeare's masterpiece? A play which narrates the simplicity of Juliet's character being essentially women, with her passion as a state of being which embodies the very essence of love and the pulse of her heart, "blending with very atom of her frame".

Verona is alleged to be the location of Romeo and Juliet's romantic scene on the balcony, their tragic love, made it famous in the world. Juliet's House which attracts hundred of thousands tourists from all around the world and it is considered the second symbol of one of the most beauty and elegant city in Italy.

But what about the truth of these characters in Shakespeare's play?
We don't know if the characters had really existed although the Capuleti family mentioned in Shakespeare's play resembles the name of the Capello family which bought the house in 1905. The similarities with the Capuleti family (as called in the famous opera) generate a kind of identification but there aren't evident proofs that the characters really lived there in the past.

Maybe they were only figments of Shakespeare's imagination. Also beacuse from an historical point of view when the play was written by the great master the architecture of the house in Verona (now identified with Juliet's house) it wasn't conform with the real one.

Indeed the problem is that although the house belongs to the 13th century the balcony was added only in the 20th century in 1936.
