Alongside Teatro alla Scala: behind the scenes of an incredible season

Macbeth opens the season at La Scala Theatre on the  7TH of December

Our commitment to La Scala Theatre strengthens again this year. Supporting and promoting culture and arts for us is an important source of nourishment for our country's growth. In particular, we believe in the importance of everyone who, with their talent and professionalism, make it possible to produce outstanding shows like those staged at one of the most prestigious theatres in the world.

The enchantment of the La Scala Season inauguration is in preview for young people

Our attention has always been focused on the youth of today. We vigorously support the LaScala UNDER30 project with initiatives dedicated to them. We believe that investing in the younger generations is fundamental for the future of all. 

On the 4th of December, Macbeth opens La Scala's exclusive UNDER30 season.

The UNDER30 Preview of the new Ballet season will be on the 14th of December with Rudolf
Nureyev's La Bayadère which will be premiering for the first time ever at La Scala. 

On display: "Prima della Prima. The rite of La Scala’s inauguration in the Intesa Sanpaolo Publifoto Archive"

From the 2nd of December until the 14th of February in Milan’s Gallerie d'Italia at the Sala delle Colonne it is possible to admire the photographic exhibition entitled "PRIMA DELLA PRIMA.
Il rito dell'inaugurazione della Scala nell'Archivio Publifoto Intesa Sanpaolo".
The exhibition pays tribute to the traditional event of the famous theatre’s season opening which due to its social implications has taken on unimaginable social and media importance.
The opening of La Scala's season preserves both the ritual character and the message of resistance with the will to start again with good auspices.
The exhibition which is divided into three dates (1946, 1951 and 1968) traces the history of the 'social ceremony' represented by the inauguration of the season through a selection of photos in chronological order that mark the most significant moments of the theatre.
From the restoration of 1946 under the direction of Maestro Arturo Toscanini to 1951, the year in which the inauguration was consecrated on Sant'Ambrogio’s Day (previously St. Stephen's Day). Then onto 1968, which takes us back to the years of the economic boom and those of the disputes until the eve of the 1970s crisis.

Relive the magic of of the evening of December 7th, 2020

For over twenty years, we have stood alongside the Teatro alla Scala as a Founder Supporter and main sponsor of the artistic Season. In 2020 we supported the December 7th event ‘A riveder le stelle’ – ‘To see again the stars’ – which evokes the closing words of Dante Alighieri's Inferno, alluding to the hope for a quick return to normality after this long emergency. A period in which our Group’s attention and support to culture and the arts has never wavered, in line with La Scala’s strategy, just as we have maintained our commitment to addressing the health, economic and social needs of Italy.
