Description:

A large staircase is adorned with a bust of Giuseppe Verdi by Giovanni Dupré while the ceiling medallions, representing Comedy, Tragedy, Melodrama and Romantic Drama were painted by Isacco Gioacchino Levi in 1865.
Nowadays the theatre, recently restored, is equipped with all modern facilities and can house 300 people.
