Villa Borghese Tour: the Globe Theatre

Transfers Rome offers you relaxing and efficient chauffeur-driven car-hire services to let you reach and visit the most interesting and evocative locations in the capital, like the Silvano Toti Globe Theatre. Built in 2003 in the huge Villa Borghese park, to celebrate its centenary, this Renaissance-style theatre for its looks and circular shape reminds of the homonymous Elizabethan theatre built in London in 1599.

The construction of the Globe Theatre in Rome, made possible by the Silvano Toti Foundation and the Amministrazione Capitolina, has valued this wide Roman green area with another treasure to visit and admire. In this evocative theatrical space the major plays by William Shakespeare get periodically performed, interpreted by great Italian actors.

The characters from “The Tempest”, “Love’s Labours Lost”, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” come to life in the Renaissance theatre in front of the admiring eyes of the audience. This wood theatre, with a 100 meters circumference, was built in less than three months and can host up to 1206 spectators. The Art Direction is by the great Roman actor and director Gigi Proietti, the mind behind the project.
