A space, which thanks to the particular architectural characteristics and stylish simplicity of the scenes, has allowed a cathartic relationship with the plays of the English Renaissance theater in the splendid summer setting of Villa Borghese for sixteen consecutive years.
The Globe Theater in Rome was built in 2003, the year in which the city celebrated the hundredth anniversary of Villa Borghese, virtually merging with the city of London, the hometown of the original Elizabethan theater.
The construction was made possible by the Silvano Toti Foundation, to whose memory the theater is dedicated. From 2003 to today and during the summer several shows, under the artistic direction of Gigi Proietti, give tribute to the great Shakespeare and the Elizabethan show.
Scheduled this month:
- until 15 September at 8.45 p.m. (except on Mondays), Riccardo III, directed by Marco Carniti;
- 16, 23, 30 September at 9 p.m., Edmund Kean, directed by Gigi Proietti;
- from 20 September to 6 October at 8.45 p.m., Sunday at 6 p.m. (except on Mondays), Giulio Cesare, directed by Daniele Salvo.
