Theatres & Concerts Halls.
The old Teatro Bellini had a rather short but intense life. Inaugurated in November 1864, after only five years, in April of 1869, was destroyed by a fire which left standing only the outer walls. The old Bellini was not in the same place of the theater: his position was but a few hundred meters away. The theater, originally stood at the edge of Piazza Dante, who then called Largo del Mercatello, in the area today, down from Via Pessina, are on the left side of the square, just where is Via Bellini.
