Teatro, Sabbioneta

Vincenzo Scamozzi, back from the construction of the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, arrived in Sabbioneta in May 1588, and designed the Teatro all'Antica, a small court theatre for the Gonzaga family at Sabbioneta. Unlike the Teatro Olimpico, the stage here is a single architectural vista behind a shallow-raked open platform, after the manner of the stage illustrated by Sebastiano Serlio. The theater was built between 1588 and 1590.
