Stock Photo - Vicenza, Veneto, Italy. TheÂ Teatro OlimpicoÂ ("Olympic Theatre") is a theatre inÂ Vicenza, northernÂ Italy, constructed in 1580-1585 ...
. The theatre was the final design by the Italian Renaissance architectÂ Andrea PalladioÂ and was not completed until after his death. TheÂ trompe-l'œilÂ onstage scenery, designed byÂ Vincenzo Scamozzi, to give the appearance of long streets receding to a distant horizon, was installed in 1585 for the very first performance held in the theatre, and is the oldest survivingÂ stage setÂ still in existence. The full Roman-styleÂ scaenae fronsÂ back screen across the stage is made from wood andÂ stuccoÂ imitating marble. It was the home of theÂ Accademia Olimpica, which was founded there in 1555. . The Teatro Olimpico is, along with theÂ Teatro all'anticaÂ inÂ SabbionetaÂ and theÂ Teatro FarneseÂ inÂ Parma, one of only three Renaissance theatres remaining in existence.
