It was built during the early decades of the 1st century BC, when the inhabitants of Bononia gained the status of Roman citizens. After the first building works, the theatre structure was extended: the cavea (the seating sections) was enlarged to a 93 m diameter and the whole building was adorned with precious imported marbles, mosaic floors and walls, stucco and frescos featuring vegetal patterns. The theatre’s distinctive feature is its structure based on a close web of exposed radial walls of sandstone obtained by cementing up different irregular elements.
