No need to introduce it. Everybody knows it's the first Opera House in the old continent. The acoustics of this theater - which you may have a chance to see while visiting the Museo Teatrale alla Scala - are even more legendary than its history.
The building dates from 1776-78, though it was effectively restored - extremely well, thank to the determined efforts of Milan's citizens - in 1945-46, after bombing during the Second World War.
From January 1 2002 to December 7 2004 the Teatro alla Scala was closed down for major refurbishment. Performances were held at the Teatro degli Arcimboldi.
Right in front of the Scala you find the City Council's headquarters, namely Palazzo Marino.
