The Foundation

The Franco Zeffirelli International Centre for the Performing Arts, supported by the Maestro himself, brings together and makes available to his city and the world the entire artistic and cultural patrimony of his almost 70-year career.


The School

Educational activities at the International Centre for Performing Arts, directed by Carlo Savi, involve all theatre and cinema disciplines, from set to costume design to music, direction and acting.

Il Museo

The Museum

The exhibition itinerary – divided chronologically across the rooms into “Theatre,” “Opera” and “Cinema” – thematically illustrates the developments of theatre staging and cinematic productions, complemented with set photos and documentation that addresses single topics, from the most important theatres to beloved theatre and opera performers.

The Headquarters

The Franco Zeffirelli International Centre for the Performing Arts is located in the San Firenze Complex, the former courthouse and judiciary offices now located at the Palazzo di Giustizia in Novoli.
The San Firenze Complex, located in the piazza of the same name and among the few examples of Late-Baroque architecture in the city, was built by the Padri Filippini in honour of Saint Phillip Neri, founder of the Order and Florentine in origin.
