The Giuseppe Verdi Theatre is one of the most beautiful buildings of the city. Inaugurated in 1872 with the representation of the “Rigoletto”, it was the launch pad for important artists such as Enrico Caruso, Titta Ruffo, Gino Bechi and Italo Taio.

Due to the severe damages caused by the 1980 earthquake, it remained closed for almost 14 years.

Reopened in 1994, it is among the few theatres in Italy with a perfectly preserved wooden structure.

A few steps from the old town, it can accommodate about 600 spectators (220 in the stalls, 280 in the boxes and 100 in the gallery).
