POP visits - Palladio Olimpico Project

pop red

The initiative began with the City of Vicenza’s dream to make the visit to the Olympic Theatre memorable and innovative through a narrative method, conceived by Alessandro Baricco and Scuola Holden, which aims to enhance all the historical spaces of the theatre. The entire theatre will be involved in the narration, becoming prologue and epilogue of the show and visitors will take a journey discovering the stories, voices, videos and images. The stage and sets, usually off limits, will also be virtually accessible.

Tour itinerary: starting from the room “Odeo” you will go through a small theatre curtain and enter the room “Antiodeo”, which will host a virtual meeting with the writer Alessandro Baricco, who will recount – through a screen – the history and wonders of the earliest roofed theatre in Western culture. In the theatre hall, the heart of the narration, which will be accessible from the top as it was in the past, you will first see a show of sounds and lights; then through a tablet, you will virtually visit the hidden places of the theatre, and finally, you will be able to admire the extraordinary monument in all its natural beauty.

Visiting hours (the tour takes 45 minutes):

  • From 30th October 2018: from Tue to Sun at 10.00 and at 15.00
  • in July ad August: from Tue to Sun at 11.00 and at 16.00

Those who wish to visit the theatre in a traditional way can do so during other opening hours.

Available languages: English, German, Russian, French, Spanish.

The visit may be made at no extra charge to the cost of admission to the theatre by going to the IAT Office in Piazza Matteotti. The ticket is single, cannot be booked and will be issued until the seats in the Olympic Theater have been filled.
Only for groups ( +10 pax), reservations are required through the call center tel. +39 0444964380 or via email booking@comune.vicenza.it.
