On December 1, 1560 the Accademia Olimpica
decided to stage the comedy L'Amor Costante
by Alessandro Piccolomini for the next carnival. The Accademia
entrusted the stage set design to Palladio, who constructed a wooden structure modeled after an ancient Roman theater. The carpenters and painters involved in the project included Giannantonio Fasolo, the sculptor Lorenzo Rubini and one messer Zuane recamador
, who perhaps assisted with the costume design.
