(Podrobnosti)3.3.1585 | Opening



Andrea Palladio began this masterwork on behalf of the “Accademia Olimpica” in early 1580. Following the unexpected death of the architect on 19 August the same year, it took five years to complete the building. Inside a closed space reminiscent of an ancient open-air theatre, Palladio placed a monumental Scenae frons (stage wall) and semi-elliptical auditorium with thirteen steps for the audience, crowned by a colonnade. Statues of members of the Academy dressed as Romans and reliefs with the adventures of Hercules adorn the room. Through the three arches of the Scenae frons the streets of Thebes are visible – a wooden, permanent stage decoration created by Scamozzi for the first performance in this theatre on 3 March 1585, “Oedipus the tyrant” by Sophocles. Next to the auditorium there are richly decorated halls. In one of them a monochrome fries from around 1595 documents events organized by the Academy.
