The Piccolo Teatro della Città di Milano is a masterpiece in the cultural European background. Founded in 1947, it is Italy's first permanent theater, and a national "teatro stabile", or permanent repertory company. Piccolo Teatro is considered a theatre of major national and European importance, a "symbol of permanency in Italy". It is located on the Via Rovello just off the Via Dante, between Sforza Castle and the Piazza del Duomo. The theatre has three venues: Sala Grassi; Teatro Studio, which was originally intended to be the theater's rehearsal hall; and Teatro Strehler, which opened in 1998 with a seating capacity of 974. Renamed Teatro Grassi by 2005, its annual calendar consists of approximately thirty performances. In addition, the venue hosts cultural events, from festivals and films, to concerts, conferences, and conventions, as well as supporting the Accademia d'Arte Drammatica.
