The Cavea, named after composer Luciano Berio, is the physical demonstration of the main concept behind the whole Auditorium project: it acts both as an open-air theatre and as a square. This dual function makes it the fulcrum of the premises’ centrality with respect to its urban surrounding.

The Cavea has gradually become a meeting place. It is now part of the urban context and is used, in everyday life, as a normal city square.
