The “Sala Plenaria” of “Teatro Congressi Pietro d’Abano” is the largest multi-purpose space in the province of Padua. The theater holds 420 seats and technical structures and systems. The seating consists of armchairs with built-in side tables. The stage provides a platform and a podium for speakers; equipment for video, film, and multimedia presentation projection; double electric roll-up screens; and a centralized simultaneous translation system. The roll-up screen measures 6 x 3.7m and the basic amplification system presents two microphones and one radio microphone.
The stage can host any type of show given its large dimensions (9.5m wide; 3.7m deep), its protruding platform (11.5m wide; 1m deep), and its red velvet curtain. On the level above the stage, there are three large dressing rooms that can host up to 12 people, with coat rack, large illuminated mirror, restrooms, and make-up stations.
The control room perfectly manages all systems, presenting the most sophisticated technical equipment. The two wide corridors along the side of the hall can also be used as exhibition areas. There also is a separate space on the right side of the corridor that can be used as storage, coordination room, and general bonus room.
