Photography | Carlo Felice Theater, Genova, Italy | October 2016

The grand opera house of Genova was damaged during the Second World War and after decades, in 1983 the city decided to renovate it. For this purpose they held a competition which was won by Aldo Rossi’s design; the proposal was to restore and modernise the theatre without competing with the historical detailing. The exterior was reconstructed, the interior was redesigned and updated with the latest technology as well as being expanded with the addition of a new stage tower.
