From May 20, the Teatro Verde, the work of the architect Luigi Vietti (1903-1998), will be accessible to the public again partially restored.
The tour allows you to visit the Green Theater, the most beautiful theater in the world, as actress Katharine Hepburn defined it in the 1950s.

In 2021 the Theater was the subject of a major restoration project, still in progress, which brought its architecture back to light, enhancing all the qualities of the materials, the botanical structure, the spatiality and the extraordinary landscape views. The Cini Foundation has thus taken a first step towards a recovery of this extraordinary architecture. The intervention, by the Cini Foundation team, was made possible thanks to the contribution of Cartier.
