The archive’s iconographic collection is from the 19th and 20th centuries. The archive has about 600 original stage designs, mostly from the premieres of the respective works, starting with the designs for Verdi’s Attila by Giuseppe Bertoja up to Nicola Benois’s designs for Respighi’s La Fiamma from the 1930s. For some operas there are different variations, such as for Puccini’s Tosca and La bohème, depending on the size of the intended theater.
