History of the Theatre:
The Arciliuto theatre is situated inside Palazzo Chiovenda, an old residence in Piazza di Montevecchio, dating from the fifteenth century. The building was designed in the 1450-60 and incorporated pre-existing house structures following a plan by the architect Baldassarre Peruzzi (a follower of Raphael’s). This building rests on the ancient walls of a Roman villa from the II century BC whose remains are still visible underground.
Today the Salotto Musicale of the Arciliuto theatre – has always been known in the area as the “artist’s small studio”. No wonder that someone even goes so far as to call it “Raphael’s studio”. This is the legend.
The Samaritani family now run the theatre. Come along and meet Enzo Samaritani- he'll tell you all about the history of the theatre- AND sing some wonderful songs for us!!
See you soon!
