One of the most famous buildings in Milan is the stunning Teatro alla Scala, better known simply as La Scala.

The theatre was built during the 18th century after the Teatro Regio Ducale was destroyed by a fire.

The Empress Maria Theresa decided to build it where the Church of Santa Maria della Scala was located. Unfortunately the theatre was destroyed during the Second World War; however only a year after the war ended the reconstruction began.

The stunning interiors, the exceptional acoustics and one of the world’s largest stages: today La Scala is considered one of the world leading opera houses. The best opera singers and musicians had performed here; the works of the most celebrated composers had premiered at La Scala.

In 1911 a group of men, composed by some of the most prominent people if Milan, decided to purchase the theatre collection owned by an antique dealer.
