The Turina Space is one of the references of the creation and cultural programming in the center of Seville. It occupies a building of long scenic tradition and privileged situation next to the Parasol Metrosol. The building was inaugurated on October 12, 1950. The theater closed in 1987 and was recovered by the El Monte savings bank in 1999, which restored the facilities and used them for the cultural activities of its foundation. In a new stage, the Seville City Council has redefined the space as a cultural container to program shows and training activities in different disciplines. Sala Silvio, for concerts, and Sala Atín Aya, for exhibitions, are added to the Sala Juan de Mairena in a cultural center that is called to host glorious days of scenic arts, music and other cultural proposals.
