Milan’s Roman Theater, built during the reign of Emperor Augustus (31 B.C-14 A.D), stood in the heart of the imperial city. According to historical documentation it remained in use until the 4th century A.D., serving, in the centuries that followed, as the fulcrum of public life in Milan. Today, the Roman Theater’s remains are housed in Milan’s Chamber of Commerce and can be visited by appointment only at Palazzo Turati, formerly the historic premises of the organization.
Open Tues, Thurs 2.30pm-4.30pm in Jan-May/Oct-Dec; June and September Tuesdays only. Closed in July and August.
