This is a restored theatre from the Farnese time almost all in wood, housed in one of the palaces in the heart of Parma. Great exhibitions, great visit

I could not have been more overawed by this beautiful, huge space. The woodwork alone is amazing. It was a breathtaking experience. I only wish that I could see a performance here.

This is an absolute must in Parma! The wooden Baroque-style theater is unique, one of those attractions you will not find in most places. It had been destroyed during WWII but was meticulously restored and opened its doors in 1962. If you buy tickets to...More
