The Roman theatre was an ancient theatre whose ruins are located at the core of the old Mediolanum, as the finding of nearby rich Roman domus confirms.
Looking at the theatre you can have an idea of the Roman Milan size, of the space occupied by both the theatre and the other activities. You will have a clear understanding of the building techniques; indeed, you can still see the basement pilings.
You will be able to go back in time and re-experience the Roman Milan through a tour rich in odours, sounds and images. There you can also see some capitals – probably belonging to the theatre scenery – as well as the site of a Middle Age well.
