The Massimo Theater is the biggest opera house in Italy and the third in Europe and was designed by architect G.B. Basile and his son Ernesto and built between 1875 and 1891. The style is eclectic Neoclassical, with a majestic staircase at the sides of which are placed two bronze powerful lions: one of them is the allegory of the Tragedy (opera by Civiletti), the other one of the Lyric (opera by Rutelli).
