Melodrama first appeared in Florence at the beginning of the 17th century; for the following three centuries opera has been the solace and the entertainment of Italians from all walks of life: you can still perceive its influence on contemporary Italians, but this tradition is often lost as far as the provincial theatres are concerned.
Virtually in every Italian town you can see historic theatres, some fairly well preserved, some beautifully and carefully restored, but often lifeless inside.
You can be an active protagonist of our events through your support, which will contribute to a new lease of life given to this veritable casket of jewels, and old and dormant theatre.
Our next intent is to rivive the small theatres of Teatro Boni in Acquapendente and the Romane Amphitheater of Sutri, both in the area of Etruria, with our production of L'Elisir d'Amore by Gaetano Donizetti.
Welcome to our new project "Adopt a Theatre!"
