The reasons for this building can be read on an imposing travertine plate displayed on its walls:

«In his beloved Solomeo Brunello Cucinelli wanted to build this theatre for the people facing the theatre of nature to commemorate at all times the eternal values of beauty and dream»

At the entrance, the pronaos in a curved shape is supported by Ionic columns and it leads into a foyer that is also supported by pillars, where visitors are welcome by the pictures of the artists that have performed here. The inside of the theatre is charming and simple at the same time, in light soft colours and displaying the austere line of the noble oak trusses.

The parterre and cavea seating areas can seat over 200 people. The stage is 12 metres wide and 8 metres deep, with a proscenium measuring 7 metres; thanks to the system of trapdoors and the stage machinery, the theatre can very easily adjust and be suitable to any kind of stage setting, thereby meeting all of the different stage needs.
