Carlo Emanuele II of Savoy wanted the “Cavallerizza Reale” and it was built to order. It was a place where carriages were kept under cover and used as riding stables up to the end of nineteenth century. When the “Cavallerizza reale” was no-longer needed to keep carriages under cover, it was used as a store room, dressing rooms, assembly hall and for storage for many years. It is part of the “Teatro Stabile Torino circuit” which became a Foundation in 2004. A prestigious library and study center, that collects documentary archives of different theatre and opera performances has been made available to the public. Moreover, the theatre playbill stands out for its unconventional programming in an elegant style and also for acknowledging classical works as a tribute to European theatre traditions.
