While 'theater' is defined as a building exclusively used for performing arts, 'theatrical space' is defined as a place for various purposes, such as spectacle and theater activity. Compiling previous studies on the theatrical spaces in the Renaissance reveals that they have been discussed from various points of views, although architectural point of view is hardly found after 1980s. I clarify that the theatrical spaces in the Renaissance have unique characteristics which is different from theater buildings on the social roles and appearance. Thus, it is necessary for the further study to add the architectural point of view and the theatrical space may have to be reconsidered.based on the relationship among architect, confraternity and stage setting.
