This stage set at the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza truly makes the viewer feel they can walk into the set.

Andrea Palladio built this theatre, the first indoor theatre in masonry, between 1580 and 1585, when it was inaugurated. The interior is decorated with elaborate wood, stucco and plaster, and the building is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

It is open for visits, and theatre and musical productions are still held there.
