Sala Paradiso (Hall Paradise) is part of ARCI San Lazzaro and the main hall where we’re dancing. It has been hosting balls since 1992 and through several makeovers and upgrades, leading to state-of-the-art lighting, sound and video systems, it finally became what we can see today. Sala Paradiso hosts evening balls throughout the week, ranging from traditional ballroom dancing to Latin American dances, group dances from the 60’s to the 90’s and Bologna’s traditional dance: Filuzzi.
Sala Paradiso is also used as a theatre and conference hall, hosting from theatre pieces to puppet shows and concerts, most notably Paradiso Jazz, attracting fans from all over the province.
Sala 77 (Hall 77) is entitled to the club members who in 1977 decided to roll up their sleeves to repair and renovate the old farmhouse that hosts the hall (still known as the “Red House” because of its wall colour). They also created a space to play the local game of bocce (a sort of bowling game) on the side. Thursday’s balls and the contest finals will happen here.
Given the size and the wide range of uses of the building, attention was paid to thermal comfort and interior noise reduction by installing acoustic panels on the main walls, granting a very high-quality experience in all conditions of use.
The structure is surrounded by a beautiful park, perfect for walks, relax, having a chat with friends or attending one of our workshops surrounded by the nature!
