Ancient theaters are in many ways one of the most extraordinary legacies that past civilizations have left us. No less extraordinary is how well this architectural type is distributed around the entire Mediterranean basin, or the number of theaters that regularly host performances and shows. Prospectively, the survival of ancient theaters will oscillate between these two extremes: on the one hand, a contemporary reuse that keeps their functions alive along with their cultural, social and even economic relevance, but in the medium to long run will lead to inevitable progressive decay; on the other hand, an uncompromising conservation that by eliminating all manmade pressures would indeed be effective in preserving the structure but would nevertheless condemn it to an inexorable death, culturally, socially and economically. All of these considerations, albeit with different levels of priority and different needs, make it clear that the problem must be addressed as a whole, chiefly through the design, testing and concrete application of innovative management tools capable of dealing case by case with the complex issues we have outlined.
