Built between the end of the XIX Cent. and the beginning of the XX, the theatre is located near Villa Fortunata, a palace built by order of Armando Raggio (1882-85). This gem, a hall unique in its genre, a hybrid between an auditorium and a botanical garden, hosts a stage built in masonry and a proscenium arch preserving traces of flower decorations. The curved molding that keeps the two covered areas separate is amazing: the audience's of iron, the stage in tiles
From the checkerboard layout of the Roman foundation to the symbolic architecture of the Municipalities: Piacenza preserves the testimonies of the glorious past of the "land of step".
