Umbria and its Theatres

A cultural itinerary to relive the magic of the stage
Stage 1
Caio Melisso Theatre - Carla Fendi Space – Spoleto

Spoleto's oldest theatre, restored by the Fondazione Carla Fendi, has since its birth been the stage for numerous theatrical geniuses, such as Giovanni Gherardi, Emma Gramatica, Ruggero Ruggeri, Eduardo Scarpetta and Raffaele Viviani and many others. It currently hosts a significant part of the theatre season in Spoleto, but above all it is distinguished for being the reference point of the famous Festival dei Due Mondi.

Stage 2
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.

Stage 3
Theatre of Concordia – Monte Castello di Vibio

Closed for restyling since 2022, but we still keep in mind this intimate and refined jewel, built in the early 19th century. When it reopens, it will once again be an ideal destination for an evening at the theatre, or a visit, perhaps on a weekend holiday in the splendid village of Monte Castello di Vibio.

A miniature Italian-style theatre, which still seats 99. A curiosity: in the name of Concordia, the nine families that commissioned it did not own the individual boxes, distributed over nine pillars, but each month they moved up a seat, to ensure that each family, "democratically", could enjoy the show in turn from the central box.

Stage 4
Theatre of Concordia - Marsciano

Walking around Marsciano you cannot fail to notice its cinema/theatre. The façade dates back to the end of the last century. It is an example of the use of fine Marscianese brick, and what remains of the design by the famous Perugian architect Nazareno Biscarini, with its unmistakable style, the same as that of the Palazzine Biscarini in Perugia and the "lion-like" parish churches of the late 19th century.

Stage 5
Rustici Theatre - Monteleone di Orvieto

Is the Teatro dei Rustici or the Teatro della Concordia in Monte Castello di Vibio smaller? It is ideal to visit both, given their beauty - when they are reopened to the public. It was built in 1732, at the request of the community, in order to perform comedies during the carnival period. In its early years, it survived the ostracism of the Papal State, which feared that in places like this, in Umbria, a difficult land, revolutionary ideas emerging in Europe could be conveyed.

In Panicale, the elegant 19th-century theatre named after one of its illustrious citizens, a poet and member of the Accademia degli Insensati, hosts the prose season, the Pan Opera Festival, musical events, as well as conferences and dance performances. Turn off your mobile phones, its splendid historical curtain opens!
