PALERMO, ITALY - 18 FEBRUARY 2018: A view of the auditorium and the wheel overlooking it (which looks like a giant flower with eleven petals that, thorough a system of ropes, can open up to let the hot air out and ventilate the room) is seen here from the stage of the Teatro Massimo in Palermo, Italy, on February 18th 2018.
The Teatro Massimo Vittorio Emanuele is an opera house and opera company located in Palermo, Sicily. It was dedicated to King Victor Emanuel II. It is the biggest in Italy, and one of the largest of Europe (the third after the Opéra National de Paris and the K. K. Hof-Opernhaus in Vienna), renowned for its perfect acoustics. It was inaugurated in 1897.
