I teatri storici del Polesine

The Polesine region was a land of theaters. More than fifty theaters were in business through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and almost all of them were devoted to music and Bel Canto, a very surprising number considering the situation of those lands at the time. In order to build and keep these theaters in business many citizens would tax themselves, then some financial troubles and the rise of cinema marked their downfall. Then, in the last few yers a rebirth, with restorations and the resumption of activities.

Il Polesine fu terra di teatri. Tra Ottocento e Novecento ne erano attivi più di cinquanta, tutti o quasi dedicati alla musica e al bel canto, un numero davvero stupefacente se si tiene conto di com’erano quei territori al tempo. Per realizzarli e tenerli attivi molti cittadini si autotassavano, poi alcune difficoltà finanziarie e l’avvento del cinema ne segnarono la decadenza. In anni recenti ecco infine la loro rinascita, con il restauro e la ripresa delle attività.
