Live Project

The Arcimboldi Theatre is located in the heart of the Bicocca district of Milan.

The complex structure, which looks like a building disconnected from the regular urban layout, is currently the second largest in Europe and the largest in Italy.

Inside there are the offices, the dressing rooms, a double rehearsal room for the orchestra and for the dance, and several refreshment points. The ticket office is located on the north side of the square, in the low building with the arcade, which also houses a restaurant. The Teatro degli Arcimboldi is an ultramodern space where construction, acoustic and visual elements cross and was the first in Italy to be equipped with an individual multilingual booklet-display system that reports the original language of the single work and the translations in Italian, English and French.
