Teatro Comunale dell'Accademia

The Teatro Comunale dell’Accademia, Tuoro’s civic theatre, was built in the late eighteen-hundreds, to be completed a few years into the twentieth century. The Academy which funded it was composed of the richest local families and illustrious personalities, who collected the money necessary for its construction.

The Teatro Sociale, as it was initially called, was a magical setting for social events throughout the nineteen-hundreds, the place where the community assembled for Carnival revelries and dances for all occasions. Later it became a theatre and cinema, until it fell in disrepair and was closed in 1980.

In 1996 the City Council bid to purchase it, with the aim of re-establishing a theatre in Tuoro. There followed a lengthy search for funding, with the restoration finally complete only in 2004. Today the Teatro Comunale dell’Accademia has a theatrical season, a cinema hall, and workshops on drama, classical theatre, and opera.
