Also this year the event with the works by William Shakespeare under the stars is back. The 2016 season will be even more exciting because it will happen 400 years after the death of the English writer (23rd April 2016). The playbill privileges the works which have been set in Italy and deal with justice and the enactment of the law.
The location is wonderful: the Silvano Toti Globe Theatre is the only Elizabethan theatre in Italy. It is small and with no roof, in the green Villa Borghese. A magical place where it is possible to enjoy the Shakespearian masterpieces under the stars shining on the Roman nights.
For the first time from its foundation Gigi Proietti will perform as actor presenting a tribute to Shakespeare with pieces from Edmund Kean by Raymond FitzSimons.
Here it is the playbill of this incredible Roman summer.
