An urban and architectural complex that is both a work of art and a cultural phenomenon, a monument and a theater.
“The Teatro Olimpico is [¿] such a ‘special’ monument that it cannot be visited as a simple sequence of visual experiences, as in the case of a museum or a palazzo. It must be carefully understood, penetrating its complex cultural and historical background”.
Founded in the 1500s by the Accademia Olimpica, today the theater plays host to conferences, encounters, debates and ceremonies. After examining the historical phases of its construction, the guide describes the theater’s interior, giving visitors the sensation of gaining access to a special, exclusive place.
