The Teatro Municipale of Piacenza was inaugurated in 1804. It was designed by Lotario Tomba for a group of nobles from Piacenza, following the fire that destroyed the Cittadella theatre on December 24th, 1798.
The theatre is decorated in neoclassical style recalling that of the Scala theatre in Milan. Lotario Tomba worked out a plan on three quarters of ellipsis since in his opinion this design was better suited to the laws of optics and acoustics than the horseshoe plan used by Piermarini in Milan.
The programme, as usual, includes: Opera, Dance, Concerts, Prose. The 2022-23 season includes special programme for kids called "Young".
