Doglio theatre: the secret theatre of Cagliari
After thirty seven years the “teatro celato” of Cagliari is reborn as Teatro Doglio, it will be inaugurated in the first months of 2020, as well as the new luxury hotel Palazzo Doglio.
Teatro Doglio, nicknamed “teatro nascosto” – the hidden theatre, is opposite the magnificent hotel and hosted the old Sala San Pio IX in the past, property of the archdiocesan seminary.
The stage of the theatre was used the last time in 1982 for the Christmas diocese concert, the structure was then closed just a few months later because of safety issues.
The decision of closing the theatre’s activities was made after the terrible fire in the Cinema Statuto of Tourin, which occurred during the afternoon of the 13th of February 1983 and led to 64 deaths.
The theatre in via Logudoro in Cagliari was one of the many theatres closed down definitively, but today it shines again because of the architectural and urban redevelopment, showing off the beauty of this precious jewel in the heart of the ancient town.
Teatro Doglio: the perfect location for exclusive events in Cagliari
The restoration project of Palazzo Doglio, the splendid building from the mid twenties in the historical districts of Cagliari, will give life once again to the structure after being rediscovered during the first interventions and renamed Teatro Doglio.
It has been redesigned to be a poly-functional space so to act as a Congress center, able to host between 100 to 1000 people, it can host conventions, team building activities, exclusive events, product launches, and presentations. The splendid garden, two small Subcommittee halls, and last generation equipment make it the perfect location for niche events of ceremonies.
To complete the services offered by the theatre, are the two meeting halls with a capacity of more or less 60 people, each located inside the hotel which will be connected with a personal pedestrian crossing.
Teatro Doglio also promises to become the new address for high quality musical and theatrical shows, earning its place beside the Teatro Lirico of Cagliari, another important symbol of the cities cultural, historical and artistic heritage.
