Teatro della Pergola

Teatro della Pergola

The Pergola Theatre in Florence was inaugurated 350 years ago to meet the needs of the growing local theatre community. Ferdinando Tacca was commissioned to design the new theatre, clearly inspired by Renaissance Architecture models: the theatre had a single hall and balconies for single families, which allowed for a more intimate and privileged view of the show. Therefore, the Pergola Theatre became the prototype of the Italian-style theatre.
Its plan is horseshoe-shaped, its stage is very deep and its auditorium wide. Open to the paying public since 1718, the theatre was expanded and, in 1801, the Saloncino (small hall) was added for music and dance.
Many great authors chose this theatre for their operas, including Antonio Vivaldi, Giuseppe Verdi, Eleonora Duse, Eduardo De Filippo.
