Right in the heart of Foggia, the elegance of the 19th century relives with the Giordano theatre, a precious neoclassical building opened in 1828 and designed by engineer Luigi Oberty.
Originally, the elegant neoclassical façade featured a six-column colonnade, three large windows and a jutting gable. The layout was conceived in the shape of a horseshoe, while the interior featured an elevated stalls area, with four tiers of bleaches, the uppermost of which fitted with a gallery. In 1887 a radical restoration work radically changed the theatre's look, as former windows where replaced by balconies and the seating capacity was increased. 
Initially named Reale Teatro Ferdinando, later on it was known as the Teatro Dauno, and finally took the name of musician Umberto Giordano (1867-1948), native of Foggia.
