The Rifolta was an immense elliptical open tank built in the mid 1600s by the Ginetti family as a water reservoir to provide water for the population and, even more, to give an “engine” to the baronial mills through the wastewater. The Rifolta is a spectacular monument based on the water works of significant architectural and artistic value.

In 2000 The Rifolta was transformed into a great open-air theatre by relocating the structures and statues that made it up.
