About
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 15 at the time, who painted the ceiling and the vaults, the boxes and the meeting room. 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, and in July (morning) and August (Morning and afternoon) everyday

Coined the smallest theater in all of Europe, this little gem seats just about 99 people. It’s really pretty and a really fun place to go to. Monte Castello di Vibio is, in itself, a beautiful time capsule in rural Italy worth seeing, and this just makes the community that much more special.

Performance is limited because it is a bit difficult to have a complete audience to bear the costs. We are delighted to your satisfaction with the cultural visit! Thank you.

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 has been restored, showing the main stage, the audience stalls and the paint works on the facades. A real treat. Although they do not charge an entrance fee, they suggest a donation. Also the curator of the day put a tape on in English so we could appreciate the theatre.
The town itself is a jewel of a medieval town high up on a hill.

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

The theatre is in the heart of the small town of Montecastello di Vibio. It oozes with charm. We visited the theatre with the assistance of one of the staff who described the history of the place with great feeling. This theatre seats 90 people including the boxes. It is obviously treated with much loving care by the proprietors - the seats are comfortable and the decorative elements beautifully restored. I would love to go to a show here and hope to do so one day. the guided tour costs 5 euro - money well spent.
