Teatro del Silenzio in the countryside of Lajatico, near Pisa, was born by chance, if not for a true bet. And the world-famous singer Andrea Bocelli believed in it right away, since this project was based in his home land. A sweet place to whom the Tuscan singer is deeply connected.

Pisa-based architect Alberto Bartalini and Andrea Bocelli created in their joint project a natural amphitheater plunged in the Tuscan countryside, dominated by silence 364 days per year and animated just for one day by Bocelli's voice.

A place where arts, entertainment and landscape blend perfectly. Is there a better way to make a timeless and magical spot known to the world?

The heart of the whole project is the small lake from where some striking works of art arise: the ones by Igor Mitoraj, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Gillo Dorfles, just to mention only a handful of the artists involved every year.

To protect and enhance the lake, a scenery flat made of Micene travertine blocks: a natural and raw material, which doesn't prevent it to be the perfect choice for as a sophisticated landscape as the one of Teatro del Silenzio. The travertine as a material can enhance the deep-lying relationship with the pure surroundings with a minimalist personality.
