A statue for the theater

Like all Roman theaters even that of Turin had to be embellished by a rich sculptural decoration both in front of the scene and in the structures of the cavea. The bronze statues were usually honorary and could represent characters from the imperial family and local notables. A beautiful male foot in bronze, with a light fit, is what remains of one of the statues that decorated the theater. It is exhibited in the underground rooms of the museum, under the new Channel.
