The municipal theatre of Montecarotto is a small Italian style jewel of a theatre, built in the mid-1800s thanks to the legacy of a local aristocrat who asked the municipality to rebuild the previous theatre. The theatre has 150 seats divided between the stalls and three tiers of boxes, it is embellished with rich decorations including stuccos, frescoes and velvets, and is characterized by perfect acoustics.
The small theatre often welcomes spectators and visitors, surprising them with its rich beauty and refined details. It was restored in 2001 and since then it has been used for shows, meetings and both public and private events, becoming an essential part of the village’s cultural and social life. Above the theatre, the foyer is often used as a multipurpose room for meetings and small events.
The rooms below the theatre, previously used as a laboratory for machines and sets, have hosted the Civic and Mail Art Museum since 2006.
