Now, despite having been destroyed by two fires, it is beautifully restored and represents the seat of important opera, symphonic seasons and the International Festival of Contemporary Music.

The important and prestigious reputation of the Italian theater does not only originate from its immense beauty, but above all from the capacity of a thousand seats, from impeccable acoustics and from an orchestra and choir of the highest level.
