Secca theatre (at CAOS)

One of the workshops of the ex - Siri factory was destined to become the theatre (at CAOS - Centro Arti Opificio Siri).


Due also to the legislative complexity of the recovery of a disused industrial area, which foresaw the assignment of part of the area to a private company for the realisation of a shopping centre, that shed had been excluded. It was one if the outbuildings of the shopping centre, but no plans had been drawn up for its reuse. Also because if its position, at the end of the area, towards via Giandimartolo da Vitalone and perpendicular to the long strip built along the same road, which had once housed the apartments of the company managers, then included as residential area in the recovery project and subsequently, following a revision of the same project, as a formative and museum area. This is why that shed was the last tranche of the recovery intervention and reuse of the exSiri.

The abundance of space led to the idea of reuse which was actuated through the realisation of an experimental- type theatre. This is how the the present -day theatre Secci was born. The work was begun and completed in 2010 and when it was inaugurated, it was dedicated to the memory of Sergio Secci, a young native of Terni, passionate about theatre, who was killed during the massacre at Bologna station on the 2nd of August 1980, he was 24 years old. He had graduated from Dams in Bologna and that morning had gone to the station to catch a train to Treviglio for an appointment with a theatre group with whom he was going to collaborate for a series of shows.

The city of Terni wanted to perpetuate his memory by dedicating to him the new theatre of the Siri complex in a structure that fuses working-class culture ( from which Sergio Secci originated) with all- round art. In a structure belonging to the heritage of industrial archeology state-of-the-art technology can be found. It seats three hundred.
