On 19 January 2002 the new Teatro degli Arcimboldi, built in the former Pirelli-Bicocca industrial area, opened with La traviata, conducted by Muti, while on 23 May the Theatre Museum opened at Palazzo Busca. The Milan City Council approved the project by the architects Mario Botta and Elisabetta Fabbri for the restoration of the Scala Theatre. In September 2003 the Scala was again on tour in Tokyo. On 7 December 2004, with Antonio Salieri’s Europa riconosciuta conducted by Riccardo Muti, the restored Scala theatre reopened. The Scala Theatre Museum, newly designed by Pier Luigi Pizzi, also returned to Piermarini’s original building. In the spring of 2005, Riccardo Muti left the Theatre after having been its musical director for 19 years.
