Located in the homonym square, Teatro alla Scala was built on the side of 1381 St. Maria della Scala church.

The Austrian Empress Maria Theresa was the one who actually financed the construction of the theater and the architect was Giuseppe Piermarini, a passionate advocate of the neo-classical school.

The theater was officially inaugurated in 1778 with Antonio Salieri's "Europa Riconosciuta".

La Scala was reopened in December 2004 after a three-year break due to complex restoration and renovation works.
