The Antico Teatro Romano (English: Ancient Roman Theatre) was an ancient theatre located just outside San Gimignano in Tuscany.



Typical Roman theaters were constructed of concrete, a material which was no longer used in Renaissance Italy, as the recipe had been lost. Their semicircular design created superior acoustics, allowing spectators to hear the plays, speeches, or choral events performed on stage.[1]

Renaissance Italians practiced a rudimentary form of recycling when dealing with Roman structures: any marble that could be found was ripped off the buildings to be reused as free building materials.


During the Renaissance, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze followed Jacopo de' Pazzi to the theatre and spied on a Templar meeting between Jacopo, Rodrigo Borgia, and Emilio Barbarigo.[2]

During the meeting, Rodrigo argued with Jacopo over his conduct of the Pazzi Conspiracy, and ultimately stabbed him, leaving him to die on the stage. Rodrigo and Emilio then left, and ordered their guards to eliminate Ezio, as they were aware of his existence nearby. However, Ezio overpowered the guards and ended Jacopo's suffering with his Hidden Blade.[2]
