This illustrious theatre in the center of Rome had its origins as a concert hall in 1882. It was designed by architect Andrea Busiri Vici with internal decorations by Alessandro Bazzani and was located on the ground floor of an existing building. In 1890 it was enlarged to the plans of architect Giulio Podesti and had 650-seats. It was converted into a cinema in 1913 but also until 1930 it was a noted variety or Vaudeville theatre hosting some of the finest performers of the era. From 1930 and into the 1970’s it was a cinema, including a specialized cinema d'essai from 1991-2001. In 2002, after some physical restructuring, it became a home for quality stage productions.
