The Teatro Della Pergola was born in the seventeenth century thanks to the initiative of the Accademia degli Immobili, whose aims were artistic and cultural, oriented to different disciplines: music, mathematics, acting, reading, and representation of comedies. Before becoming a splendid temple of culture, the large room housed a pulling house owned by the Arte Della Lana, one of the seven significant arts of the guilds of arts and crafts of Florence in the Renaissance period. The works of the Theater, designed by the architect Ferdinando Tacca, were started in 1656 and concluded in 1661 to host some of the celebratory events of Cosimo III's wedding with Margherita d'Orleans.  

Florence, Italy: culture and tradition

In a wooden structure, the Theater had a large stage. It exhibited three tiers of boxes supported by a large loggia, making it the first architectural example of an "Italian" theater. A series of rooms and courtyards made the environment soundproof from the neighboring streets. It could accommodate over a thousand people, housed in the boxes and in the loggia open to the stalls, where the audience sat on fixed benches and in two distinct sectors to separate the male audience from the female one. In the center of the room, there was the area reserved for the most illustrious members of the Academy. In the nineteenth century, La Pergola expanded its activities to singing, dance, and opera, setting up high-quality programs with Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Rossini, Pacini, Ricci, etc. Since 1925, the Teatro Della Pergola has been a national monument. There are many other points of interest in this street.
