Evaluation of the Acoustics of the Roman Theater in Benevento for Discreet Listening Points

This work reports the acoustics of the Roman Theater in Benevento evaluated for discreet listening points positioned in the cavea in three radial directions. The theater, built in the second century A.D., was abandoned due to historical reasons and natural events. The recovery work ended in 1950. The theater is the center of important social activities. The theater acoustic measurements were taken by placing an omnidirectional spherical sound source on the stage and in the orchestra, with the microphone  along three distinct radial directions on the steps of the cavea. The acoustic properties in the various seating areas were measured. The aim of the work is to evaluate in which sectors of the cavea the acoustic parameters are optimal for listening to different types of theatrical performances.
