One of the basic intentions of the project was to improve the conditions of the site. It’s like a urban piece where the public space penetrates, joins and complements the theatre.

The theatre’s extension is framed by a dialectic vision of interactions between town and theatre: the theatre stretches beyond its limits while the town must find in it a porous space, a space of journeys, echoes, dreams, encounters and everyday life, devoted to contemporary modes of expression and deliberately placed at the very heart of the town.
