Il Teatro

farnese_palco

On the first floor of Palazzo della Pilotta a monumental doorway in painted wood, surmounted by a ducal crown, leads us to the Farnese Theatre: a spectacular setting that still conserves reminders of the sumptuous life of the court of the Farnese Dukes. Almost completely destroyed by bombs in 1944 and rebuilt in modern times, the building exemplifies some of the most exceptional theatre architecture of the seventeenth century.
