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.
