This theatre was founded at the end of 1700; it has been seat of the Animosi Academy till 1938. From 1970 to 1997 it has been closed because it was unfit for use. Now it opens only sometimes for particular celebrations such as those dedicated to Dino Campana, the poet born in Marradi. The opening of the hall coincided with a new period of its activity: exhibitions, meetings, dance school, theatre lab, recording hall, disco and cinema.
The central square is a meeting place but also an interesting place from the artistical point of view. In fact, there are palaces built in different centuries: from the 17th century Fabbroni Palace, to the 19th century Credito Romagnolo Palace in neomedieval style.
