The Cavallerizza theatre owes its name to the fact that, from the late 19th to the mid-20th century, the building housed the stables for the horses of the Zucchi artillery barracks, which have now been transformed into the main building of the city’s university. In 1986, the municipality transformed the Cavallerizza into a theatre. In 2002, on the occasion of the international conference of “Architecture and Theatre” studies, the Cavallerizza theatre was dedicated to Cesare Zavattini.
