|Teatro Carlo Goldoni, San
Marco. This is the oldest theater in Venice still
in operation. It opened in 1622 and underwent a number of
reconstructions and name changes. It was called Teatro
Vendramin, Teatro di San Salvador and Teatro di San Luca.
After being closed for several years it reopened, completely
restored, in 1979.
|"I cannot rid myself of an impression that every
Venetian door represents a particular year; that the city
is in fact a museum that contains all human history and
all of our future as well. This would, of course, explain
why the doors are so mysterious and forlorn; why they are
always locked; why nobody ever seems to be entering or
coming out." Constantin Boym.
