Bagnacavallo used to have a theatre also in the early XVIII century. It was a wooden structure located inside the present Palazzo Abbondanza. In 1839, the Municipality decided to built a new theatre hall overlooking the main square, right next to the townhall, on the area formerly occupied by Palazzo Brandolini. The design was commissioned to the Bolognese architect Filippo Antolini and the theatre “Carlo Goldoni” was inaugurated in 1845.
The auditorium “Sala del Carmine” hosts several concerts and theatre events, like the showcase “Stagione al Carmine” and the music event “Rassegna Corale Città di Massa Lombarda”.
