The Teatro Petruzzelli is the most prestigious cultural container in Bari and Puglia and is the fourth Italian theater in size as well as Europe’s largest private theater.
Located in the heart of the city, on Corso Cavour, it is not far from the Palazzo dell’Aquedotto Pugliese. Opened in 1903, in 1991 was destroyed by an arson fire, then rebuilt and returned to the ancient splendor in 2009.
The Umbertine style of the building is in harmony with the rest of the borgo borgo, the new part of the city. The Theater can accommodate up to 1,500 spectators and rich artistic programming is entrusted to the Petruzzelli lyric-symphonic foundation.
