Teatro alle Tese

< Back
In the heart of the monumental area of the Arsenale, the Tese Cinquecentesche (the warehouses where the sails were stretched in the 16th Century) are made up of four buildings connected by large arches.
 
The Tese Cinquecentesche host the Teatro alle Tese, that opened in 2000: a flexible space conceived for theatre and music productions as well as meetings, with a seating structure that can be assembled and taken down, a stepped incline (18 cm rise) for a total of 160 seats, to be added to the 248 seats on the ground level in front of the stepped structure. A partially permanent stage (16 meters wide by 6 meters deep) with an electrical system covering the entire available space, with electrical power connections of up to 100 kw and a central control panel positioned in the central Tesa of the four that compose the overall space of 2650 sq.m, divided by large stone arches.
