The Garibaldi Theatre has a fabulous interior and it houses the concerts of the Sicilian Symphonic Orchestra Foundation
The Garibaldi Theatre aka Politeama is another marvellous theatre in Palermo. An excellent architectural building erected in the heart of the city as a theatre for the locals – a “community theatre.”
This exquisite theatre is a must see in Palermo simply for its architectural importance. It was inaugurated in 1874 although it was still lacking a roof that was later added on. An all time favourite is the entrance characterised by a neoclassical triumphal arch crowned by a two wheeled wagon pulled by four horses. The interior is also fabulous. You can take a 20 minute tour inside or probably your best way to enjoy it is to attend a concert of the Sicilian Symphonic Orchestra Foundation which is housed in this theatre.
