Built at the end of the nineteenth century by the entrepreneur Giuseppe Negri, to the engineer Daniele Donghi’s design, winner of the competition announced by the Comune di Varallo, the Teatro Civico was solemnly inaugurated in August 1901, with a performance of Rossini’s “Barber of Seville”. The area occupied by the new theatre is the place where the ancient Vicinanza building stood, which was already used as a theatre from 1810, and then demolished. The facade of the building has a central porticoed part on the ground floor surmounted by a portico, delimited by large windows enclosed by lateral columns. Currently, following the restoration initiative that also included adjustment in accordance with safety regulations, the theatre, no longer used as a cinema as in the past, hosts performances and cultural events.
