This is the room which we use and make available for exhibitions and conferences, for our formal meetings, and for the rehearsals of the village Band. It houses the historical archive of the Teatro Povero, and a significant proportion of our wardrobe.
The room is named in memory of Aldo Nisi, the first President of the Teatro Povero Co-Operative and one of the company’s founders. At one time this was cellar space for the farmhouse (fattoria) of Monticchiello’s main landlords.
The room offers cable connection, Wi-Fi network, a sound system and toilet facilities, and is equipped for video projection. Coffee breaks can easily be organized, either inside the room or using the kitchen upstairs in the Barn (Granaio). Meals can be served in our Bronzone Tavern.
