The Auditorium dei Teatini is the result of a masterly restoration work and the use of the most advanced technological solutions. The former St Vincent’s church has regained the original splendour due to the recovery of the frescoes and the existing wooden artworks. Still, it was technology that allowed to convert this building originally thought for worship into a vanguard auditorium, comfortable and well equipped with high-level acoustics.

LITEC structures in FX30SA, QX30SA and QH30SA trusses were used to support sound and lighting equipment and let roofing sheets slide on special guides. They were placed in two areas: the first of 15x15x7.5(h) m dimensions stands frontally close to the altar, and the latter of 16x10x7.5(h) m measures lies at the back of the Auditorium.
