This roofed outdoor summer theater never fails to draw audiences from far and wide. Built in 1982 on the grounds of the abbey for the Benedictine nuns, it is always a surprise to find the contemporary theater next to a barn that houses an 18th century crèche that belonged to the King of Sardinia in 1720."
