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:
- from 2 to 14 July at 9.15 p.m. (except on Monday), A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Riccardo Cavallo;
- from 19 July to 4 August at 9.15 p.m. (except on Monday), The Taming of the Shrew, directed by Loredana Scaramella.
