Here there was “food for the mind” from the XVI century. The theatre was born, in fact, in 1560, but from the second part of 1300 it was a place of an extraordinary historical and civil importance for the Siena Republic, becuase here the People Council met him. The sincere wish is that it could continue to be still, for long time, a space to feed the spirit, above all for the young generations>>.
