Garibaldi Theatre – Enna


Born from the dream of Gaetano Grimaldi Arezzo, mayor of Enna, the initial project for the Garibaldi Theatre dates back to 1860 but was realised a few years later, designed by Enna architect Giovanni Sberna, to be inaugurated in 1872.

Incorporated into the existing Senatorio Palace, today’s Town Hall, over the years it underwent several modifications and renovations until it reached a capacity of 360 seats between the stalls and the four tiers of boxes, enriched with stuccoes and frescoes by the Palermo painter Leopoldo Messina.

The Garibaldi Theatre offers the public a varied programme, embracing prose, dance, classical music, shows for young people and cultural events. Among these, the Neglia Prize, established in 1962 to honour one of Enna’s most illustrious citizens, Francesco Paolo Neglia, is today one of the most important international prizes for pianists and opera singers.
