Novellara (Reggio Emilia)
Inaugurated in 1868, it reproduces in miniature the structure of the Municipal Theatre of Reggio Emilia with a horseshoe plan, three orders of boxes with a gallery and a wide scene surmounted by a clock. It was named after the tenor of the city only in 2012, but its roots go back to the hall for shows existing since the sixteenth century in the fortress of Gonzaga. Then in '800, Antonio Tegani took care of the realization of the theater as you can see now, with the beautiful decorations of Cesare Cervi.

Rubiera (Reggio Emilia)
The name recalls the old toponym of Rubiera, and its curtain first rose in 1926 revealing the late art-nouveau style designed by Antonio Panizzi and Italo Costa. Very active also as a cinema, it was closed and then reactivated, after restoration, in the late '80s.

Luzzara (Reggio Emilia)
Inaugurated in 1852 thanks to the local theatre company, the theatre has lived several events that have led to its closing at the beginning of the sixthies. It was later bought by the local municipality and in 1988 began restoration works, then stopped due to insufficient funds. Thanks to the project by Un paese foundation and a group of passionate volunteers, in 2013 the local Municipality started again restoration works finished in 2018 with the opening of the new Teatro Sociale Luzzara, entitled to Danilo Donati, now hosting 99 seats.
