In the 18th century, this building was probably created with a renovation of a late-medieval palace. At the beginning of the 20th century, it was renamed to “Teatro Ristori” to commemorate the famous actress of Koper origin, Adelaida Ristori.

As a result of the dilapidation of the building, the theatre was relocated several times in order to renovate the building. During the Second World War, it even housed an armoury. The last major renovation of the building was completed in 2009.
