Teatro di Marcello

Teatro di Marcello Review

Begun by Julius Caesar and completed by the emperor Augustus in AD 13, this was Rome's first permanent building dedicated to drama; it held 20,000 spectators. Like other Roman monuments, it was transformed into a fortress during the Middle Ages. During the Renaissance, it was converted into a residence by the Savelli, one of the city's noble families. The small archaeological zone is used as a summer venue for open-air classical music and lyrical concerts.
