Teatro Verde

Venice, Italy. 2018 - ongoing

The Norman Foster Foundation is collaborating with Fondazione Giorgio Cini on the concept of the restoration of the Teatro Verde, an outdoor theatre set in the gardens of the island of San Giorgio Maggiore.

Originally designed in 1952 by Luigi Vietti and Angelo Scattolin and built with materials left over from the island’s restoration, the theatre is currently not functional. The restoration will not only bring the theatre back to its original state but also enhance it with the addition of a new structure, carefully respecting the theatre’s design and setting, that will allow it to host a wider range of performances.
