Lungotevere Tordinona - distrutto

1670 Carlo Fontana (1634/1714) for Queen Christina of Sweden

It was better known as TEATRO APOLLO (Apollo Theater)
It was demolished in 1888 to build the embankments of the Tiber River

It was the first ever theater in Rome where women acted in 1798
Here were held the world premiere of Giuseppe Verdi's operas Trovatore and Un ballo in maschera
A commemorative plaque of 1925 by Cesare Bazzani (1873/1939) recalls these events
