The project stems from the specific need to revive the use of the Piazza Piemonte Theater as a place suitable to host major musical theater productions. The goal is to relaunch the image of the National Theater through a total renovation, which modifies the internal layout (in line with the necessities of current technology, enlargement of the stage) and the external image (restoration of the facades), while maintaining its original features.
A redevelopment of the Piazza, together with new underground parking, allow a general rethinking of the public space and a chance for the revitalization of the Piazza itself, creating spaces that can actually be used.
Recuperating the facade of the theater therefore has a symbolic role: it means giving value to the public space, restoring a uniform appearance and giving a clear identity to the building. All the closed openings towards the Piazza were restored, all the doors and openings were replaced with wide windows. All the external decorations made of concrete were restored.
SCE Project was involved in the concept, developed, technical and construction structural design and in the structural construction management of the National Theater of Milan.
