Beautiful wood constructed theatre with productions still going on. Incredible murals , sculptures and you can also see the wood construction behind the bleachers BUT the best is hidden in the galleries behind.

Built entirely from wood, Parma’s spectacular 17th century baroque theatre was the prototype for modern playhouse theatres. Largely destroyed by Allied bombing in WWII, and faithfully restored from original plans, its U-shaped rows of bench seating, topped with ornate arches, is an impressive site.

This enormous wooden theater inside the Pilotta Palace is stunning. We spent at least 30 minutes taking in its totality and then the individual features. A great opening to an excellent pinoteca.

Rebuilt with few original elements of xvXVII century after the bombardments of WWII is still a very impressive and unique monument deserving the visit

The Teatro Farnese is really impressive and if you are in Parma you can not miss it. The very impressive thing is that it is all made of wood, the proportions are grandiose and it will be very interesting to view a show in there....More

Ornate and beautiful, mostly wooden, structure. Be sure to look for the patches that are colored differently. They are original. This is best if you have a good guide, since there are many stories you would not otherwise know.
