Arcimboldi Theatre

The Arcimboldi Theatre (also known as Teatro della Bicocca degli Arcimboldi or with the abbreviation TAM) is a theatre in Milan built in the period 19972002 on the initiative of the the municipality of Milan and Pirelli. It is the work of the renowned Milanese architect Vittorio Gregotti.

The theatre takes its name from the Arcimboldi family. More precisely it is a New Arcimboldi Theatre because an Arcimboldi Theatre directed by Ettore Gian Ferrariwas already open in Milan in the 1920s and ’30s.

Its construction has been linked to the events of the Scala Theatre, as it was intended to accommodate the performances of this theatre on the occasion of its last refurbishment. It was inaugurated on 19th January 2002 with La Traviata.

The stage and capacity dimensions are very similar to those at the Scala: in particular, the proscenium (16 by 12 metres) is identical to that of the Scala, so you can easily transfer the scenes that fit the two theatres interchangeably. The room has a fan shape, measuring 49 metres at its widest and 35 metres in depth; average height 22 metres. The scenic tower is 33 metres high.[2]

As in all classical lyric theatres, the theatre is divided into three areas: foyer, hall and stage. The capacity is 2,346 seats. There are four levels of seats for the audience: stalls, upper stalls and two galleries.
