The Opera Theatre of Bologna
The Municipal Theater was built by Antonio Galli da Bibbiena. After the fire in February 1745 that destroyed the Malvezzi Theatre, the city promoted the construction of a new one, first named the "Public Theater". The first example of an opera house built with public funds and rented by the municipality.
Built on a project by Antonio Galli da Bibbiena, the theatre was inaugurated on May 14, 1763 with the opera Gluck's Il trionfo di Clelia, written just for the occasion. In the nineteenth century twenty works by Gioacchino Rossini rapresented, while seven of the ten works by Vincenzo Bellini were represented there in the 1930s.
