History edit

An early theatre was opened in 1819 by the Accademia degli Industri and designed by engineer Giacomo Passerini. The building was entirely re-constructed between 1888 and 1892 by architect Augusto Corbi and engineer Ferdinando Ponticelli. The theatre was purchased by the Bernieri company in 1928 and then sold to the Municipality of Grosseto in 1938.[1][2][3]

Turned into a cinema at the end of World War II, it was damaged by the 1966 Ombrone flood and later restored by architect Giuliano Bernardini. Another significant restoration work was carried out in 1990 and the theatre re-opened in 1997.[1]
