I've showed my daughter the wonderful theatre of our town: it's possible to visit it in the afternoon till the end of July. It's one of the nicest places we have in Brescia and visitors can't miss it!

I have been there and watched my friends in The Nutcracker in November 2014. It has been a very beautiful experience. This theatre is a jewel and well kept. It deserves a one-night event or more if you can!;)
