About the events
Bagni Misteriosi, the open-air swimming pool adjacent to the Franco Parenti Theatre becomes the stage to a vast array of theatre performances. Milan’s theatre season is resuming in the unique setting of a former bathing centre from the 1930s, located in the Porta Romana area. It is precisely in what is not just an open-air swimming pool (to experience during the daytime) but a genuine location of culture (to visit in the evening, also at aperitif time) that the great theatre director and artistic director of the Teatro Franco Parenti, Andrée Ruth Shammah, has devised and organised the summer in the city: a new life for the theatre after the long period of forced closure of artistic activities. In the evening in the swimming pool, which is open with two sessions during the day, the floating platform is transformed into a stage with an arena with no less than 500 seats all around it, fully respecting the anti-contamination regulations.
