This is the San Marco theatre in the Venezia area. Only the facade remains of the original building since it was bombed during WWII. The new premises house a preschool.

This is however a significant place in the history of Livorno, and indeed of Italy. On the 21st of January, in 1921, the Italian communist party was founded here in the theatre.  Livorno has always been a city of resistance, of partisans, of anti-fascism.

    Ojojoj, vad fint – gammal teater, minsann!
    Översta bilden påminner om saluhallen här i Göteborg, ingången från Södra Larmgatan.
