Teatro Bibiena

The side of the building that gives onto Piazza Dante, where the Classical Lyceum and the Library are, is the result of more recent restoration that closed the north-west side of the building. The church of Santa Maria Del Popolo, knocked down in 1891, stood where now the small square opens up. The National Academy of Virgil is the result of the final transformation undergone by the Royal Academy: during the Napoleonic period it changed its name, reflecting the general harmony between the ideals of the French Government and the tradition of Latin culture.
