The Scala Theatre was built on the ashes of the Ducal Theatre in 1776. The name derives from the place in which the theatre had been built, the site of Santa Maria della Scala Church. Often referred to simply as the “Scala”, it’s one of the most famous theatres in the world: it’s been hosting international artists for over 200 years and some of its works are still present in the billboards of the most famous opera theatres in the world. It’s located next to the Casino Ricordi, which today hosts the Museo Teatrale alla Scala (theatrical musem of the Scala). The museum was officially opened the 8th March, 1913 and incorporates 2 halls and Livia Simoni’s Library (140.000 books). Inside the museum halls there are very important paintings, among which can be found a portrait of the Scala’s constructor, Giuseppe Piermarini, as well as the portraits of Giuseppe Verdi and Giacomo Puccini.
