  • The theatre is located in the complex of Villa Torlonia, beautiful villa that is located on the Via Nomentana. The theatre was built by the architect Quintiliano Raimondi commissioned by Prince Alessandro Torlonia during his marriage to Teresa Column, but jobs for various ominous events lasted from 1841 to 1874. The eclectic style of theater goes back to the fashion of the time and includes more classic styles, Moorish, Gothic, Greek-Roman and Renaissance. The theater followed the history of the complex, in fact during the Fascist period the Torlonia came to dwell in the Casina delle Civette, always in the context of the existing building villa, renting a Villa in Benito Mussolini. The Villa then from 1944 to 1947 was occupied by Anglo-Americans. Over the years, the Villa and the theatre, abbondonati themselves, have undergone many thefts leaving these structures crumbling and devoid of furniture. Only in 1978 and the whole complex was purchased by the city of Rome. After many years of restoration the facilities of Villa Torlonia were able to move back in, the theatre returned to reopen its doors only in 2013 and now is used for operas, theatrical events, exhibitions, concerts. Of course this is a large not because Theater built by Torlonia for their private events: is a real wedding favor all painted! The complex of Villa Torlonia is accessible by Metro bus stop in piazza Bologna. You can visit when you book the number of the municipality of Rome 060608. Must see the beautiful park within which there is also restaurant La limonaia.

  • Public garden is really a term reductive to describe this park, which is right on the nomentana in Rome. There are tied very, since it was a short distance from where I lived in Rome for a few years, and after work often took advantage to stop by here and read a good book. It is also important from a historical point of view, Mussolini's residence for some time. Very well maintained, inside there is the hoot owls an old house completely restored appointments that hosts various exhibitions.

  • It is inside a park and the villa used to be Mussolini's home. There are alsosome other interesting places that are worth checking out.
  • Very hard to get to. Not well marked at entrances. Grounds are terrible. The building exteriors are in disrepair and I felt like I was trespassing in an abandoned property. The Interior of the Museum IS nice and the rooms are interesting and lovely. The art is interesting but only as a walk by.
  • We visited the bunker tour, very good with an excellent tour guide. The park is very beautiful as well
  • Very nice quiet park, with 3 museums, theatre, and bunker, absolutely to see and spend some time here,
  • Great piece history, this house his so much story surprised it was the only paid attraction in this park, can't help but to think it could be out of reach for some people, wish it was free for all or for local residents.
