The Teatro Regio behind the fifth/ the scenes

The square prevails over individual architectures. Behind the facade sleeve of the Alfieri, uniform to the rest of the "Area of Command" that borders the square to the northeast, the current Teatro Regio occupies with its contemporary forms the place of the small Teatro del Re and the courtyard of the Military Academy. It remains at the bottom and in continuity with the Secretariats of State, the sleeve of the State Archive, designed by Juvarra for this function and still active today.

For the history of the Teatro del Re and the project of Carlo Mollino for the new theater see the POI " Teatro Regio Torino "
