La Magnifica Fabbrica: 240 Anni del Teatro alla Scala, da Piermarini a Botta

Museo Teatrale alla Scala / Milan

La Scala was inaugurated in 1778, just two years after the United States declared freedom from Britain, and to this day, the season opening of the Milanese opera house is a society event. This exhibition probes 240 years of the theater’s architectural history: how it has changed with the times, how it has maintained its centuries-old stature, and how its restoration by the Swiss architect Mario Botta, due for completion in 2022, meets the moment. —J.V.
