The Teatro Civico (Civic Theatre)

While investigating the streets and boutiques of the "ciutat" (city), you cannot allow yourself to miss out on a visit to one of its most evocative squares, Piazza del Teatro (also known as Piazza del Bisbe).

 

Looking onto the square is the elegant Teatro Civico di Alghero. Designed in 1829 by architect Franco Poggi, this civic theatre stands out from all other theatres not just in Sardinia but throughout Italy, thanks to its unique structure, which is made entirely from wood.

 

The restoration works completed in the 1990s reinstated the building’s original splendour. A glimpse inside will reveal the lavish interior, rich in stuccos and brocade, which features a three-level loggia and, at the centre, the ancient royal box.
