Scala Opera House

La Scala square is located very close to the Duomo of Milan and "la Galleria" is an elegant link between these two most important sites.

On one side there is la Scala Opera House and on the other side of "la Galleria" there is the La Scala square. A statue of Leonardo and his pupils stands in the middle of the square, not so far there is also the City Hall of Milan.

La Scala Opera House was built in 1778 on top of a previous church named Santa Maria della Scala, in reference to the powerful family “Della Scala” whose daughter married the duke of Milan , Bernabò Visconti.

La Scala is probably the most important Opera House in the world; the high level of performances is maintained thanks to the Milanese who are very knowledgeable and boo if the performance is not top level.

La Scala has a characteristic horse-shoe shape with four levels of boxes and two galleries, all shining with decorations and gilded stuccos in Neoclassical style.

The recently renewed stage has a huge surface (1600 m2 ).

The visit to the La Scala Theatre is a highlight of the Milan tour.
