Abstract (in English)

Between the second and third decade of the sixteenth century, the antiquarian interests of Alvise Cornaro could find answers in scholars close to him who had produced studies and research through the examination of texts, documents and testimonies of classical antiquity. Giovanni Maria Falconetto could re-propose to Cornaro the models of ancient architecture whose proportions he had directly surveyed in Verona, Rome, Zara and Spoleto. These formal models came from different types of architecture: domus, public baths, theaters and amphitheaters etc. And the drawings that Falconetto had obtained from the measurement of the Roman ruins had a literal correspondence in the treatise of Marco Vitruvius which, in those first decades of the sixteenth century, was having a wide diffusion. This is why it is thought that when Alvise Cornaro talks to us about the theatrical scene he is referring to a real building for the theater and not to the loggia of the courtyard of a domus built according to the ancient model.
