The theatre was opened in 1993. It has 420 seats (300 in the stalls and 120 on the balcony) and a large raised stage. This facility is used during the school year for several initiatives, i.e. the evening of Christmas greetings, the school festival, drama performances and school graduation.
The structure houses a Museum of Natural Science, used by teachers for speciﬁc purposes, and it can be visited by appointment. The ﬁrst wing, built in 1938, contains several thousand fossils of each geological era in educational developmental sequence and numerous species of animals from around the world; the second, the Giol Museum (donated by the counts), hosts bird species of Italy, particularly of the Veneto region (some of them are endangered). About twenty of them are reviewed in the Italian Journal of Ornithology. The classroom inside, equipped with a computer and a projector, makes it a privileged place to conduct science classes.
The church, located close to the original, nineteenth-century Collegio and commissioned by the Bishop Sigismondo Brandolini Rota, is a special space of artistic interest. It is now used as a spiritual place for teachers and students to meet and for religious celebrations.
The Brandolini Rota historic library, situated in a safe and easily accessible area, provides an extraordinary collection of historical texts (including early volumes from the 16th century), mainly in Italian. At present, the collection is being reorganised to allow access for students and teachers, upon request. The twentieth-century texts will be available for students and teachers on shelves open to the public. The collection is focused on philosophical, theological, literary and historical subjects. There will be a teacher available to assist in the library. This area will be also dedicated to conferences, receptions, seminars, exhibitions and other public events.
