This building, interesting example of the industrial architecture of the Twenties, was subjected to some renovation works, projected by the architect Roberta Boncio and financed by Bologna Municipality (the owner of the building), the Region of Emilia Romagna, the Quartiere Borgo Panigale, pectators and companies. The theatre (public property) was opened in October 1999.
It is kept by “Teatri di vita”, which is famous all over the world for its theatrical productions. This organisation conceived the space renovation, on the basis of a project by the Centro Internazionale per le arti della Scena , which is leading to Bologna the most important theatre and contemporary dance companies from all the world.
