We first start our tour with the Olympic Theater. Opened on 3rd March 1585, it is Andrea Palladio’s last work and masterpiece. It is the oldest roofed theatre in the world and it was designed drawing inspiration from the ancient Greek and Roman theatres. Its famous perspective scenery of the Streets of Thebes was designed by Vincenzo Scamozzi. The theatre hosts numerous events: classical music performances in spring, some concerts of the New Conversations Vicenza Jazz International Festival in May and the prestigious Cycle of Classical Shows in autumn.
We continue with Palazzo Chiericati. The building, designed in 1550 for Girolamo Chiericati, is one of the most renouned masterpieces of Andrea Palladio. Embellished by frescos and stuccos, it is enriched by one of the most prestigious european civic collections of paintings, sculptures and applied arts from the thirteenth to the twentieth centuries. For its exceptional cultural importance, Palazzo Chiericati is declared World Heritage of Humanity site by UNESCO.
