LA CONTRADA THEATRE
The founders of the Teatro Stabile played in the theatre itself, favouring not only the company's growth, but also the launch of their performances.
In 1976, after a disappointing opening season due to the earthquake that struck Friuli Venezia Giulia, the company decided to focus on an artistic area that was underexplored at the time - children's theatre. It was a resounding success and the Contrada Theatre continued along these lines, becoming a milestone in the history of Italian children's theatre.
In 1982, the company was looking for space to perform the new children's productions and leased what was at the time the Cristallo cinema theatre. The company is still based there today.
The company offers a rich and varied programme that includes prose, comedies, a repertory of works in Triestine dialect and, of course, children's theatre pieces.
