The Silvano Toti Globe Theatre is the Elizabethan Theatre of Rome within the "museum park" in Villa Borghese. Built in oak, designed in a circular shape with a stage that juts out into the middle of the audience and an open roof, it offers an almost exclusively summer season. As well as the Elizabethan one, also the GLOBE of Rome is made up of wood, and for its realization 600 mc of oak has been used, issued from forests "managed" and therefore reafforested, carved and manufactured in sawmills of Central Italy. The roof is shingled by cooper battens.

On the grounds of the Villa Borghese, a replica of Shakespeare's own theater, where every summer, works of the Bard and other classics are presented in Italian. Charming "corral" for live performances surrounded by the historical-environmental frame of a long loved Villa in Rome, therefore very popular and "lived-in" both by young citizens and grown ones, the Theatre combines experiment and tradition in the perspective of making a different audience, for age and formation, get on well togheter, with a cultural purpose open-minded and cultured in the most popular sense of the term. The theater is dark on Mondays.
