to history the thoughts, choices, engineering and know-how of the Protagonists who, sharing a unique
mission, have united their consciences to project themselves towards the 'common goal that has made

The theatre was completely destroyed during II World War. In the following decades, many proposals were developed for the new theatre. In 2003, the final design was accepted, following the rule “where it was, how it was”.
The new structural design involves various fields of structural engineering, from geotechnical design to prefabricated and cast in place reinforced concrete structures, steel and wood structures.
