Fundación Astengo Auditorium

Inaugurated at the end of the 1960s, it was the result of Héctor Ignacio Astengo´s passion for his home city. Since then, this Theater has been one of the cultural landmarks of Rosario.

Born in 1895, Héctor Ignacio Astengo studied Law in Rosario, but never practiced, deciding instead to manage his family’s farms, which were spread across the Province of Santa Fe. In the 1940s, the circumstances of life took him to Canada and, later, to Paris. However, he always harbored the wish to come back to Rosario to start a cultural project that would help raise the educational and artistic level of the city. His wish came true in 1967, after he bought his brothers out of their share of the Odeon Theater, which they had inherited from their parents.

Today, this magnificent building, a replica of an Italian theater from the mid-19th century, belongs to the Héctor I. Astengo Foundation, which keeps alive its founder’s spirit of commitment to local Art and Culture. Another noteworthy fact is that, over twenty years ago, the Rosario branch of the “Mozarteum” (civic association that promotes classical music) chose this Auditorium as its headquarters. This theater is capable of seating 1100 people.
