Multimedia reconstruction of the Panzano Theatre

The theatre

The Panzano Theatre, opened in 1920 and demolished after the bombings of World War II, represented the most important of the welfare initiatives conceived by the CNT for the entertainment of the workers and their families. A superb example of eclectic architecture and Secessionist decorativism, it was adorned with a cycle of thirteen paintings executed in 1921 by the painter Vito Timmel (Vienna 1886-Trieste 1949).

A multimedia space is dedicated to the 3D virtual reconstruction of the Panzano Theatre, an interactive video projection that allows visitors to explore aspects of corporate welfare and the beauty of a building (the theatre) that in this representation comes back to life in all its charm.
