Treviso stad i Italien med operahus
Treviso är en stad i regionen Veneto i nordöstra Italien med cirka 83 000 invånare. Treviso är huvudort i provinsen med samma namn och är belägen cirka 30 km norr om Venedig.
In 1999, following the closure of the Teatro Comunale in Treviso, the Cassamarca Foundation, ever eager to support the conservation of historic buildings as well as cultural activities, undertook to oversee the structural and functional restoration of Teatro Eden, a Liberty style building of the early 1900s.
Once the renovation work overseen and financed by the Cassamarca Foundation was completed, the Treviso City Council, through a convention ratified on February 24th, 2000, entrusted the management of the Teatro Eden to the Foundation
The anticipated artistic and cultural activities to be held in Teatro Eden were to fulfil the stated objective, among others, of protecting the continuity of the theatrical tradition until completion of the Teatro Comunale restoration
In this context, a further convention between the Treviso City Council and the Cassamarca Foundation was established. The Foundation is once again entrusted for the restoration and management of another theatre, Teatro Comunale.
In order to facilitate these results, the Cassamarca Foundation has constituted an instrumental company, known as Teatri S.p.A., whose activities focus on the management and programming of cultural initiatives held in the Teatro Eden and in the other theatres which come under its control.
The Cassamarca Foundation has so continued to purchase and receiving in concession other theatres, located in the main towns in the Veneto. This has lead to the development of a newly conceived theatres network, run by Teatri S.p.A.:
