The monumental three-arched open-air pavilion, or sala terrena at Wallenstein Garden , by Giovanni Pieroni, completed in 1629. In form and dimensions it is a faithful copy of the portico of the duomo in Livorno, built under the supervision of his father Alessandro, architect to the Medicis.

Profusely decorated with frescoes of the Trojan War by Baccio Bianco, it’s no surprise that since its construction the pavilion has been used for concerts and theatrical performances. In 1859, Friedrich Schiller’s dramatic trilogy ‘Wallenstein’ was performed here. In the 20th century, the sala terrena formed the backdrop for two films based on the lives, respectively, of Mozart (Amadeus, 1984) and Beethoven (Immortal Beloved, 1994).
