Founded in 1947 by Paolo Grassi and Giorgio Strehler, Italy’s first “teatro stabile”, referred to as Teatro d’Europa in a ministerial decree in 1991, today the Piccolo Teatro has three different performance spaces: the original theater on Via Rovello, now named after Paolo Grassi, the experimental Teatro Studio, and the new Teatro Strehler located in Largo Greppi. The Piccolo Teatro is directed by Sergio Escobar, with Luca Ronconi as artistic director.
Teatro Strehler was inaugurated on January 26, 1998 with Mozart’s Così fan tutte, the last performance by Giorgio Strehler, who passed away just a few days following the opening. Teatro Strehler was designed by architect Marco Zanuso. With a seating capacity of 960, it is the Piccolo Teatro’s largest performance space.
