Owner description: Splendida ricostruzione di teatro farnesiano nel palazzo della pilotta
Reviewed 2 June 2018

Built entirely from wood, Parma’s spectacular 17th century baroque theatre was the prototype for modern playhouse theatres. Largely destroyed by Allied bombing in WWII, and faithfully restored from original plans, its U-shaped rows of bench seating, topped with ornate arches, is an impressive site.

This enormous wooden theater inside the Pilotta Palace is stunning. We spent at least 30 minutes taking in its totality and then the individual features. A great opening to an excellent pinoteca.

Rebuilt with few original elements of xvXVII century after the bombardments of WWII is still a very impressive and unique monument deserving the visit

The Teatro Farnese is really impressive and if you are in Parma you can not miss it. The very impressive thing is that it is all made of wood, the proportions are grandiose and it will be very interesting to view a show in there. The ceiling is very high and when you step in you feel like a midget. Not to be missed!!
