This marvellous theatre has only 99 seats shared between its boxes and stalls. 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

Apparently the smallest theatre - it holds 99 people and is made of timber. It is from the very early 19th century and was restored in the late 80's. It is still in use but you can do a tour for €5.

This is a theater from beginning of 1800, wonderfully restored, and still in use. Really small (the smallest in the world), 99 places, ceiling and stands wonderfully decorated by a 24 years old boy in the second half of the 1800. We had a very good guide, really enthusiastic about the place and the whole village (he's also the author... More

This is certainly worth seeking out and visiting, however you may want to check out opening hours, as it is only open at weekends and times do vary. Inside there is a small area to look at the theatres history over the years, before listening to recorded details (available in various languages) before going into the main area. Inside the...
