Bibbiena
The Teatro Dovizi is a 19th century theatre in Bibbiena (Arezzo) with neoclassical and baroque elements. It was built in 1842, amongst noble palaces of the 16th century, commissioned by the Accademia degli Operosi. The project was assigned to the architect Niccolò Matas who also worked on the facade of the nearby Oratorio di S. Francesco and the church of Santa Croce in Florence.

Inside, it is in the typical U form, with the stage paralell to the road and three further rows of tiers that were later altered due to changes to the building, which was transformed into a movie theatre with galleries and without changerooms and other elements. After restoration the original decorated wooden roof was revealed, with a faux sky reminiscent of Tiepolo. The facade has been conserved essentially without changes.
