At the end of Via Garibaldi , in front of the construction which hosted the Bank , there was the Municipal Theatre of Narni dedicated to the figure of the ex Mayor and intellectual Giuseppe Manini.
The Municipal theatre of Narni.
The Manini Theater was built from 1845, five years after the decision of the Municipality to dismiss the ancient theatre placed at the third floor of the Municipal Palace, now inadequate to the needs of spaces of modern shows.
Projected by the architect Giovanni Santini, was inaugurated on the May 3, 1856, Feast of San Giovenale and Centenary of the Sanctuary of Madonna del Ponte, with La Traviata of Giuseppe Verdi. Was a success: finally Narni and its people have a place of spectaculum worthy of the town.
