It was finished in 1808, under the Napoleonic occupation, and was initiated by nine local families. In the second half of the 19th century it was decorated by Cesare Agretti and in 1892 by his son Luigi, only 14 at the time, who painted the ceiling and the vaults, the boxes and the meeting room. After its construction, Monte Castello di Vibio became a capital of a large territory and enjoyed a particularly vibrant period thanks to the ideals of brotherhood and equality introduced by the new French administration. The original building has been restored several times. The latest works, after a period of neglect during the 50’s and 60’s, were finished at the beginning of the 90’s. The interior of the theatre, considered “the smallest in the world”, is made entirely out of wood in the “Goldoniano” style and represents a rare example of its kind, offering a harmonious and well thought out use of space for scenery, for the actors and the audience. Plenty of shows take the place each year: prose, opera, classical and jazz concerts. The theatre is also available for meetings and civil weddings, and can be visited on Saturdays and Sundays, between 25th December and 6th January, and in July and August everyday « less

As regular theatregoers we had to visit this place. The tour is in Italian but a CD commentary is put on in English during the visit. During the summer the theatre is open virtually daily as we went on a Tuesday. The little town is interesting with lovely views. A donation is recommended as no charge is made.

If you are driving through Umbria, perhaps on the wine or olive oil trails you might come across this small gem tucked in the center of a Monte Castello di Vibio. It is only open on the weekends and the guide speaks working English, the outside doesn't look like much but the inside is magnificent . The theatre was the... More

Billed as the smallest theater in the world, it is truly lovely. It was built by local families to bring culture to a tiny charming town. The interior is lovingly restored and the acoustics are great. The town itself is worth a walking tour and the piazza with it's long range lovely views is the perfect place to drink a... More

Monte Castello is well worth visiting, with narrow, seemingly timeless, streets and wonderful views across the Tiber valley. Theatro della Concordia is the highlight of the town, and not to be missed. A perfectly shaped auditorium gives a wonderful sense of intimacy. Knowledgeable guides, all part of the volunteer group that run the theatre, are welcoming and friendly, and give... More

This extra small theater (99 seats) is wonderful and enchanting. Its a miniature version of "La Scala" and the little town - Monte Castello di Vibio - is a little gem in the Umbrian countryside. Not only it hosts classical music concerts and theater performances, but it is also a great venue for company small business events.

The small theatre in the beautiful town of Monte Castello was a find! Along a winding alley was the entrance to a restored building housing the theatre. It is looked after by the townspeople for their volunteer work. It is called the smallest theatre in the world, 99 seats and they do have regular shows during the summer. The inside... More

The village is a jewel so beautiful and well kept that looks like a movie, and the visit the "smallest theater in the world" is a wonderful continuation .The entrance to the theater is free.There is a guided tour that carried people who love this place and help to maintain .

Although tiny it is surprisingly accommodating and the info commentary was well done. Some of the decorative painting was splendid though some primitive.
