Truly it is a reconstructed theatre, because was bombed in some stupid war. But its atmosphere keeps the magic of seicento and it would be great to attend a performances there. Besides to the Painting National Gallery of Parma

The theatre is older thant the Globe and is part of Parma national gallery museum. Find the ticket office on the left, don't forget to visit the library free of charge on the right.

This is a sight that is unique to Parma and well worth seeing. Hard to appreciate its size and majesty from photos. A must-see.

I never expected such a theatre in the national galery. Everything is wood and the acoustics is just great.
