Overview

Commissioned by Prince Maffeo Sciarra for the production of operettas and light comedies, this theater was constructed entirely of wood in 1871. It was rebuilt in stone at the beginning of the century and owes its present appearance to the architect Piacentinin who was responsible for its restoration in the 1950s. The stage has played host to many famous Italian actors including Fregoli, Petrolini, Visconti and Gassman. Today the Quirino is managed by the Italian Theater Board and mainly offers high-quality classical and contemporary theater productions. A particularly interesting initiative is Dopo il sipario during which the audience can talk and mingle with the actors. The theater also houses seminars, meetings, conferences and art exhibitions.
