Teatro di verzura Castello di Spessa

Teatro di Verzura

One of its kind in Friuli Venezia Giulia, the Teatro di Verzura, with green grassy bleachers sloping down to the stage shaded by the branches of a 100-year-old oak tree, and with flowering bushes and statues marking the gentle slope, can host up to 500 spectators and echoes the tradition of Italian Gardens.
The Teatro di Verzura enriches the cultural offerings of Castello di Spessa, a place of beauty and culture that hosted Giacomo Casanova and Lorenzo da Ponte, Mozart’s librettist. The structure is perfectly integrated into the park, embraced by beautiful, geometric vineyards, which were already referred to in the 19th century as Weingarten, or Wine Gardens, due to their beauty (unique in Collio).
Its realization is a tribute to the territory and recalls the morphological characteristics of Collio (the stalls steps reproduce the terracing of the vineyards, the orchestra pit reproduces a small pond, like those found nearby), in order to give the audience an experience not only of art, but of complete immersion in the nature and culture of the territory.
