teatro BramanteUrbania's theatre, with three tiers of boxes and gallery, is one of the jewels of the Marche. It was built on the base of an old 14th century fortress. In 1855, thanks to the Theatre Academy, set up by well-to-do citizens, it was redesigned by architect Ercole Salmi.

In 1864, after the unification of Italy, the new theatre, which was named after the illustrious citizen Donato Bramante, was inaugurated with Giuseppe Verdi's Troubadour. Romolo Liverani, from Faenza, of romantic sensibility, painted the scene on the theatre curtain with the view of Piazza San Cristoforo. The painter Lancisi of Sant'Arcangelo painted the medallions on the ceiling which figure the 4 elements (air, earth, water and fire) within an elegant mythology. The Pesaro artist Pietro Gai modelled the bust of Donato Bramante and of Girolamo Crecentini, who delighted the audiences of Napoleonic Europe with his voice. Also by Gai are the golden friezes around the medallions, featuring personages from the Renaissance and from the Risorgimento linked to the city's history: Francesco Maria II Della Rovere, Bramante, Raphael, Girolamo Crescentini, Filippo Ugolini, Rossini and Verdi.
