Clitunno Theatre - Trevi
The curtain of Domenico Bruschi, the "painter of united Italy"
If you are in Trevi, check the theatre programme and book a performance. You can enjoy the evening in an elegant theatre from the late 19th century, decorated by Domenico Bruschi, one of the Perugian painters who was most active in the area and in various Italian cities during that period.
Of particular beauty is the curtain, created by the same painter, signed and dated 1877. The imposing work represents the Emperor Caligula offering sacrifices to the god Clitunno.
The theatre was built in 1875, under the guidance of architect Domenico Mollaioli, and replaced the decadent theatre inside the town hall.
It was inaugurated in 1877, with a performance of Gaetano Donizetti's ''Maria di Rohan''.
