During the 19th Century the town of Rimini acquired an international reputation for the seaside, and a new theatre which was designed by Luigi Poletti succeeded in translating into Neoclassical form the ambitions of the ruling classes. 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.
