Theatres in Rome will be free for all during a series of special events this Sunday 1 October from 10.00-24.00.
Some 34 theatres will take part in this initiative entitled "Festa dei teatri" which will see over 50 events throughout the capital including theatrical performances, guided tours, presentations, debates and live readings.
Among the participating theatres are Brancaccio, Valle, Eliseo and Belli.
"Festa dei Teatri" follows the success of the first edition held last year where 13 000 members of the public took part.
