My God if I had to post my country's opera houses ( and works of art as in that other thread), I'd need about a thousand pages... My own small town has an opera house patterned after La Scala in Milan. And probably enough museums and art works per person to compare to a major city.

I appreciate that Italy does have a lot of opera houses, however all pics and contributions are welcome. :)
