In Ermoupoli, during the period 1830-1860 there was a great theatrical movement. On 30 October 1861, the City Council accepted the citizens' proposals and unanimously decided to build a theatre and a theatre club in the central square. The construction costs of the theatre were estimated at 60,000 drachmas, but in spite of controversy, a permanent roof replaced the wooden warehouses, clubs and cafes of Ermoupoli which had sheltered players since 1828. It was received with relief from the theatre-loving public. Construction began at the end of 1862, close to the Miaouli Square, supervised by the architect Pietro Sambo who then worked as an architect in the town hall of Ermoupolis. (Wikipedia)
