Teatro Marcello

  • Via del Teatro di Marcello

Begun by Caesar and located between the Tiber and the Capitoline Hill, it was completed and enlarged by Augustus, who dedicated it to his nephew, son of his sister Ottavia and his heir, though he died young. In the Middle Ages, it was used for houses and workshops. Restored in the 1920s, it is one of the few and oldest theatres remaining, and over the centuries, it has been used as a model for theatres and amphitheatres.
