Survey: Teatro Massimo in Palermo ranks among the top three theaters in the world

The ranking, based on a sample of 100,000 voting users from the international platform Travel 365, on a selection of 50 theaters around the world, sees the Teatro Massimo in Palermo in third place among the most beautiful and important after the Colon in Buenos Aires and La Scala in Milan. “It is a reason, not only for satisfaction, but for great pride. Yet another recognition of what represents the symbol of culture for the city recognized internationally. All this demonstrates how far-sighted the choice of this administration was to focus on the revival of the Teatro Massimo from the very beginning, and the results of the last two years are clear proof,” says the mayor and president of the Teatro Massimo Foundation, Roberto Lagalla. “We are happy with this recognition which encourages us to maintain the level of cultural offering and the usability of the Theater high, both as a monument of unparalleled artistic and monumental value, and as an institution and factory of art and culture that, with all its workers, represents Italian cultural identity in all its richness and beauty,” adds the superintendent and artistic director Marco Betta. Inaugurated at the end of the nineteenth century and immediately the protagonist of the city’s cultural life, the Massimo is one of the most visited monuments in Palermo. In 2023 it reached the absolute record of over 200,000 visitors. Open 365 days a year, today it is the first cultural factory in Sicily with its orchestra, choir, ballet corps, youth formations, and stagecraft workshops.
