Piazza della Libertà 7 - 06049 Spoleto
The Roman Theatre (I century B.C.), an eloquent testimony of the Roman Spoleto, has been brought back to light between 1954 and 1960.
It was identified in 1891 by Giuseppe Sordini through a 16th century drawing that placed it in the area of St.Agata’s Convent. Today it is included into the complex hosting the State Archaeological Museum and it is still used for performances and various plays. The access is located along via St.Agata but it’s possible to have an overview even from the outside, from the overlook on piazza della Libertà, through the arcades placed on the West side.
