Tourist Attraction in Grosseto: Teatro degli Industri
The Teatro degli Industri is the main theater in Grosseto and its province. Origin is to be found in the first salon built in 1819 by the local Accademia degli Industri. The hall was able to accommodate about 500 people between the hall, surrounded by a porch, and the 36 stages on two orders. After some changes on the stage, built in 1869, the theater was affected by a substantial expansion and renovation plan between 1888 and 1892 on the design of the Sienese architect Augusto Corbi and under the direction of the architect Ferdinando Ponticelli: a room was built horseshoe, for 800 spectators, with 56 stages distributed over three orders. The building, which houses the Teatro degli Industri, is set on two levels, with its main facade covered with plaster, with three entrance doors overhanged by round arches and 4 ledges, two separating the main door from the right side doors and left and two are located between each of the two side doors and the respective end of the facade: all 4 slopes culminate with capitals that support, in all, 3 timpani open at the lower end one central and two lateral. In each of the three partitions of the main façade, above each entrance door, there is a corded shelf that anticipates the above rectangular window; between the top of the three windows and the upper timpani are placed masks and stone garlands.
