The Teatro Olimpico was designed by the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio in 1580, and is the first and oldest permanent covered theatre in the modern era. Its creation was based on a former medieval complex and was commissioned by the Accademia Olympica for the staging of classical plays. Its wooden structures are the only ones of the Renaissance reached us in excellent condition. The theatre still hosts plays and concerts, and is included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, like several other works by Palladio in Vicenza.
