The theater was built in 1938 in Via Giosuè Borsi 20, in the Parioli district, and was intended to be used as a movie theater.
In 1958 it became a prose theater and reached the pinnacle of fame thanks to artists such as Alighiero Noschese, Antonella Steni and Elio Pandolfi with some representations that made the history of Italian entertainment as Scanzonatissimo, which later will be the subject of film adaptation.
In December 1977 the theater was the victim of a fascist attack, the building was set on fire and suffered extensive damage.
Since 1982, it has hosted the television shooting of the Maurizio Costanzo Show, a popular talk show broadcast in late evening on Mediaset networks.
In 1988 Maurizio Costanzo became artistic director of the theater and on the stage of Parioli will take turns some of the great talents of Italian comedy including Vincenzo Salemme, I Fichi d'India and Giobbe Covatta.
In 2011 the Parioli Theatre risks to close its doors and is saved by Luigi De Filippo, who becomes artistic director from June 28, 2011 until his death on March 31, 2018. In addition, the theater was renamed Teatro Parioli Peppino De Filippo in honor of Luigi De Filippo's father.
