If you’re looking to experience some culture in the city of Parma then why not visit the Teatro Farnese, a beautiful example of a historic theatre. 
Although the original theatre was destroyed during WWII war, it has been rebuilt to the original plans and is made entirely out of wood, making its design and acoustics completely unique. The original building was built in 1600 and at the time was the largest theatre in the world, able to hold up to 4,500 people. It was originally built to celebrate the visit of Cosimo II de Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany who was meant to visit Parma on his way to Milan, however, due to ill health he didn’t make the trip. The Duke of Parma was said to have been disappointed as he’d hoped to arrange a marriage between his son and the Medici family. 10 years later however, his son did end up marrying a Medici and the ceremony was held in the Teatro Farnese. Today the construction, although newly built is still a fantastic design which embodies Parma's historic past.
