I will guide you on a fascinating journey, to get to know, as in the mid-nineteenth century, a group of noble Cortonesi, who decided to build and equip Cortona with a new space for performances.
The Accademia degli Arditi since 1854, with the motto “Niente l’arresta”, has contributed with such determination to create a wonderful building, the “Teatro all’Italiana” with the aim of “Educating and instructing while delighting”.
The Signorelli Theater was, and is a place, where the Cortonese Community has given life to events of great importance, on its stage great actors and musicians have performed, and still perform.
History, carpentry, architecture and many theatrical curiosities will allow you to discover this beautiful place of culture, dreams and entertainment in the city of Cortona.
