The Leopolda Foundry

An example of industrial archaeology today it houses the Municipal Theatre of Follonica

The Fonderia 2, better known as the Fonderia Leopolda, located inside the Ex Ilva Park, has been home to the Municipal Theater since October 27, 2014, the Leopolda Foundry Theater.

Its construction dates back to 1834, but following the decommissioning of the Royal Imperial Foundries, like the entire area, it fell into progressive and severe decay.
Now, together with other buildings inside the park, thanks to the efforts of the last four municipal administrations, it has been completely restored.

The theater, beautiful and unique in its kind, an outstanding example of industrial archaeology, has 404 seats and hosts the theatrical seasons organized by the municipality, as well as a series of other shows of various genres: dance, music, festivals, etc.

In the foyer of the theater designed by the famous architect Vittorio Gregotti, cultural events and contemporary art exhibitions are also held.
