Ian Arnott, RSA, RIBA, FRIAS, is an architect, retired from the practice of Campbell and Arnott. He is an Academician of the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture and a winner of their Gold Medal for Architecture. After visiting the Marche he was given a Sir William Gillies Award to research more deeply into the historic theatre tradition of that region in Italy.

In the book he examines the origins of the Marche’s theatre boom and analyses the historic, social and archtectural significance of this remarkable theatre heritage from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century and examines the factors which led to such a boom in theatre building in a relatively isolated area of Italy.
