Roman Theater of Benevento
The Roman theater is a construction that dates back to the beginning of the second century. It was built at the behest of Adriano and then was enlarged by Caracalla. Originally it consisted of three orders of twenty-five arches, today only the first order and a large part of the second have survived.
Two other relevant elements are: the semicircular cavea, where you can see the remains of the ancient white marble cladding, and a large scene that completes the theater. The structure can have a capacity of over ten thousand people, and even today its excellent acoustics allow you to organize musical and theatrical events especially in the summer. Until 1890 the theater was covered by the houses that had been built above, after the discovery excavations were immediately started to bring the theater to light, even if it was returned to the public only in 1957.
