Teatro Politeama Rossetti

The theatre (seats 1531).
The building was designed by
Nicolò Bruno in 1878. As the theatre is in an unusual position, nestled on the hillside, Bruno designed the main facade (with its entrance going straight into the foyer) up the steep slope you can see on the right; however the main entrance to the theatre is actually off the avenue to the left and so the foyer is on the first floor from the avenue entrance and on the ground floor from the hill entrance where the columns are.

A truly lovely building.

That must have been a design challenge. The result is gorgeous! And your wonderful photography enhances its beauty even more.
