Teatro Carlo Goldoni, San Marco. This is the oldest theater in Venice still in operation. It opened in 1622 and underwent a number of reconstructions and name changes. It was called Teatro Vendramin, Teatro di San Salvador and Teatro di San Luca. After being closed for several years it reopened, completely restored, in 1979.

 A door in Castello


"I cannot rid myself of an impression that every Venetian door represents a particular year; that the city is in fact a museum that contains all human history and all of our future as well. This would, of course, explain why the doors are so mysterious and forlorn; why they are always locked; why nobody ever seems to be entering or coming out." Constantin Boym.
