During the XVII century it was renovated several times, and since that moment it hosted all theatrical genres, from puppets to circus art, opera, operetta, concerts and especially prose.

It was named to Eleonora Duse in 1898, when the great actress was only 40 years old and she was at the peak of his career. Something rare.

Duse Theatre is a unique and fascinating location for its architecture and its history, it is located in the historic center of Bologna next to the two towers, Piazza Maggiore and a few minutes walking from Morandi Museum. Since many years, it is one of the most important prose theaters in Italy and it is considered one of the main cultural references of the city.
