Teatro romano di Torino

The Roman Theatre of Turin is the remnants of the ancient Roman Julia Augusta Taurinorum, including in the Archaeological Park of Via XX Settembre. Dating back to 13 BC, it was active until the third century and is the only facility of the Roman city to have left conspicuous evidence of the three successive phases of construction.


 The theater was built in the northeastern quadrant of the city, which is the most affluent neighborhood, surrounded by numerous patrician houses and not far from the forum. As usual, it was built near a slope to take advantage of the slope and near the walls which enclosed the town.
