The Giorgio Cini Foundation is located on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore. Besides the monumental complex which used to be a Benedictine monastery, featuring Palladio’s Cloister and Refectory, Longhena’s Library and other works from great architects of the past, there are two other places on the Island: the Teatro Verde and the New Exhibition Centre. The Teatro Verde, built in the 1950s with materials left over from the Island restoration, is an amphiteatre inspired to ancient teatri di verzura (vegetable theatres), featuring stepped rows of white Vicenza stone divided by box-hedges, in the heart of San Giorgio Maggiore park.
