The subject of sustainability in the industry of cultural remains a problem to solve for Italy. Rome, the capital of this issue, presents some cases of obvious insurmountability of the structures and spaces dedicated to the culture that led to its closure. Theatres are the most contemporary example of this. The Teatro dell’Orologio is among the most recent examples of this reality that is struggling to sustain itself and to keep up with finances and regulations, in a similar way to the Teatro Valle a few years ago.
