Bologna’s Globe Theatre: things in heaven and earth

Everyone at Bologna’s Globe Theatre is familiar with the famous verses from “Hamlet”, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy”.

Indeed, things of all kinds – different in terms of quality, use, nature, and shape – crowd the rooms of this emporium: design objects; kitchen utensils; tools for hunting, filming, or mountain climbing; things that could come of use in a gym or a pub… Making a complete list would be impossible, just as it would be impossible to bring all of reality back to an artificial philosophical system – like Shakespeare said.

Steno Tonelli is a costume and set designer. His Ditta Globe Theatre opened about thirty years ago; it rents out material that can be used on cinema and theater sets, and furnishes and stocks stores, private homes, and fairs.

The beautiful bazaar is named after London’s famous Elizabethan playhouse, for which the Bard of Avon wrote.

Here the whole world goes on stage, every day.
