Guided tour of La Scala workshop, the location where settings and costumes of La Scala Theatre performances are created.

This huge 20,000-square-metre facility is divided in three pavilions dedicated to the director Luchino Visconti, the stage designer Nicola Benois and the costume designer  Caramba.
Most of the handmade works for the production are carried out there – set design, sculpture, thermoforming, carpentry works, mechanics workshop, set assembly, costume workshop, costume design, laundry.

The premises hold more than 60,000 stage costumes, and include practice rooms for the chorus and a stage area for direction rehearsals which perfectly corresponds to the Piermarini stage.

Visit available only on tuesday and thursdays and not on public holidays.
