What to expect

Commedia dell'arte was a form of improvised theater whose roots lie in the popular theatrical tradition of Italy before the 16th century, particularly characterized by the use of masked characters representing social stereotypes (like the well known mask of Harlequin).

Commedia dell'arte's influence was substantial for playwrights like Shakespeare in England and Molière in France, but above all to Carlo Goldoni, who reformed it during the 18th century through the elimination of profanities and abolishing the use of masks.

This is Carlo Goldoni's birth-place (1707-1793), now a unique museum where visitors can experience the magic of theater and relive Goldoni's times.

Visitors can walk through the various rooms of the house - built on three floors - discovering original paintings, precious furnishings and scenery settings built around Goldoni's major plays.

In the house (1st Floor, Room 3) you will also find a puppet theatre belonging to the collection of the Venetian family Grimani ai Servi.
