The smallest theater in the world is situated in Montecastello di Vibio. It is a real jewel with a unique structure, since it is middle way between the 16th century theater structures and the characteristic Italian theater. Planned and built in the age of Enlightenment atmosphere thanks to the initiative of some local families, it is the "smallest theater in the world" (96 seats including boxes and stalls). The theater, closed in 1951, was opened again only in 1993 after careful restoration works. Today the structure is perfectly working and has all the comforts characterizing a big theater.
