The Acoustics of Ancient Theatres

rescheduled from 1-3 September 2021 and from 2-4 September 2020

The Symposium on The Acoustics of Ancient Theatres, the second on this topic after the one held in Patras (Greece) in 2011, aims to bring together experts to present and discuss all aspects related to the acoustic properties of these monuments which are often still used for public performances including opera, drama, speech and music. The evolution and development of new technologies for the multichannel measurement systems, together with acoustic simulations, auralisation methods and virtual reconstructions, have generated renewed interest in these spaces. These aspects, as well as more interdisciplinary studies, will be presented and discussed. The Symposium is organized by the Acoustical Society of Italy (AIA) with the assistance of the TC-RBA of the European Acoustics Association (E.A.A.) and the Hellenic Institute of Acoustics (HEL.IN.A.).
