"Teatro Olimpico" by Andrea Palladio

Andrea Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico (located in Vicenza, Italy) stands as one of the late Renaissance architect’s finest works. Construction began in 1580 and was not completed until after Palladio’s death in 1585, by his follower Vincenzo Scamozzi. Inspired by Roman amphitheaters, Palladio’s design features many classical elements, including an impressive colonnade, pediments, and spectacular sculpted figures. A designated   World Heritage Site since 1994, Teatro Olimpico is one of the oldest Renaissance theaters still in existence.
