Theater Repairs


The Italian Academy’s historic 100-year-old theater will be closed for urgent repairs and renovation to its magnificently coffered ceiling from July 1, 2022, through February 28, 2023.

We are sorry that the Teatro will not be available to present events in the coming months. The Academy will nevertheless be able to host smaller-scale events in its first-floor exhibition spaces, its beautiful third-floor library, and its fifth-floor conference room.

Thank you for your patience. The Teatro will be back in operation soon, and ready to resume its traditional role as one of New York’s most distinguished spaces for academic, cultural, and scientific exchange.
