The building, with a capacity of 8000 spectators, was built during the Empire of Augustus (31 BC - 14 AD). It was probably used as a theatre until the IV century AD. In the following centuries it became the centre of public life in Milan: in the Imperial Age it was a place of entertainment and during the Middle Ages it was used as a meeting place and People’s Assembly.

The remains of the theatre came to light during the work preparatory to constructing houses and buildings in the area of Via Meravigli, Via delle Orsole, Via S. Vittore al Teatro and Piazza Affari. The most important discoveries were made between the end of the 1800s and mid-1900 during the construction of the buildings which house the Chamber of Commerce and the Milan Stock Exchange.

In 2008 the Sensitive Museum of the theatre opened to the public. The installation of the multimedia itinerary, curated by the architect Ettore Lariani, wants to involve visitors in a suggestive way, through smells, evocative sounds and the words of Casina di Plauto, acted by Giorgio Albertazzi.

An innovative way to discover a hidden Milan.
