Teatro Farnese

Local nameTeatro Farnese
LocationParma, Italy

Teatro Farnese is a Baroque-style theatre in the Palazzo della Pilotta, Parma, Italy. It was built in 1618 by Giovanni Battista Aleotti. The idea of creating this great theater comes from the Duke of Parma and Piacenza Ranuccio I Farnese. The theatre was almost destroyed by an Allied air raid during World War II. It was rebuilt and reopened in 1962.

It is, along with the Teatro all'antica in Sabbioneta and the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, one of the only three Renaissance theaters still in existence.Some claim this as the first permanent proscenium theatre.
