Montefano The Municipal Theatre

The first news of the creation of a theatre date back to 1789 with the decision to build the boxes which were completed in 1802. The theatre was radically restored in 1886. The works were directed by the engineer Virginio Tombolini, the former technical director of the “La Fenice” Theatre in Venice. Located on the first floor of the former Town Hall it is accessed from a wide staircase and features U-shaped stalls above which two tiers of boxes are supported by elegant cast iron columns, with balustrades also in cast iron. On the ceiling the painter Domenico Bruschi from Perugia depicted four Muses: Terpsichore, Euterpe, Talia and Melpomene, separated by four rounds with putti holding the wording: childhood, youth, manhood and old age. The Theatre, enriched with Art Nouveau decorations also includes an elegant foyer called “Poet’s Room” with a ceiling decorated with six plaster medallions depicting: Leopardi, Goldoni, Raffaello, Alfieri, Alighieri and Verdi and the coats of arms of the Municipality and of the Carradori family.
