Teatro Goldoni, the Oldest Theatre in Venice

by Giulia Minero
The Goldoni Theatre

One of the symbols of Venice, Teatro Goldoni is a beautiful theatre located not far from Saint Mark's Square featuring a precious international programming all-year-long.

Built in 1622, Teatro Goldoni is the oldest theatre in Venice still in use at present days. It is at the same time the spectator of great events from the past, a symbol of the city, a landmark for the citizens of Venice and a not-to-be-missed destination for tourists. Carlo Goldoni himself has worked here for 10 years, since 1753 until his departure for Paris, and has written some of his best-loved masterpieces right here. After having hosted important actors such as Eleonora Duse, during the 20th century the building has undergone important renovation works. Since its re-opening in 1979 it was lead by eminent characters such as Giorgio Gaber, and in 1992 the theatre passed under the management of Teatro Stabile del Veneto. The theatre for over 25 years has offered Venetians and tourists alike an important international programming, as well as various activities designed to suit the city, its inhabitants and the multitude of tourists from all around the world.
