ROME - Stadio Delle Aquile (55,000)


SS Lazio

2x Champion:
1974, 2000

5x Cup Winner:
1958, 1998, 2000, 2004, 2009

1x UEFA Cup Winners' Cup:
1999

1x UEFA Super Cup:
1999

This is the proposal for the new stadium that Lazio Roma wants to built in Rome.

the design studio is : AMAgroup

and the architect is : ALFONSO MERCURIO

The stadium would be equipped with a rectractable roof so it can be closed if necessary . This roof made out of a high-tech composite, would be semi-transparant in order to avoid a greenhouse-effect. Enough light could pass through the roof so the grass can grow...and there would be a nice and bright atmosphere inside the stadium. The roof would also have photo-voltaic solarcells to save energy. There would be seats for 40 000 people but the stand could be expanded to 60 000 seats later.Also part of the complex are an olympic swimmingpool, shops,museum,.... .With the closed roof and a special floor that can be installed above the grass and would still allow the grass to breath, the stadium can be changed into a multi-purpose building : concerts, events... .












here the roof is closing itself

Classy. Almost a contemporary looking exterior and a great looking roof. The stands are ok, but not special, shame it's only seated for 40,000.

Overall very good.(and different for a change)

Hope it gets built.

No its good that its only 40,000. Italian clubs seem rightly tired of playing in big poor half empty stadiums.
If this is built it would be a huge step forward for Italy. Question is; will it be be buiilt?? I think Lazio have had plans for many years without anything happening

The name of the team is Lazio Roma, hence one stadium, only for Lazio.

A BEAUTIFUL stadium!

One question thought. How can a club which is reportedly tens of millions in debt fund such a stadium?

Indeed they are still on the edge of being bankrupt. But at least they have sold some expensive star-players....to balance their budget.The stadium could even be part of the solution.Because a big problem for both the clubs Lazio and Roma is the cost of playing in the Olimpico-stadium. Since it is property of the Italian Olympic Commitee and of the city ,Lazio has to pay a big amount of rent every year and therefore financially it would be better to have their own stadium in the long run. After a decade or two, they would have won the construction-costs back.

They calculated that every homegame they would earn 5 times more if they wouldn't have to pay the rent for the stadium. Also owning your own stadium gives you more possibilities for advertising and sponsors (Vip-boxes). In general with such a beautiful and modern stadium they will probably attract more people to the stadium------>more money-------->better players---------->more sponsors-------->and above all better deals for the TV-rights and that is still a huge source of income. If you are financially independent, free from the burden of rent, you can also invest more again in your team and perform better. And than you can earn even more. The big problem : it has to start somewhere with an investment.


They don't have the money however to start the construction. That's why they are looking into loaning from the Italian Fund for Stadiumrenovation. Ideally they could get a long-running loan spread out over 20 years and pay back the stadium, which is always better than having to pay rent for someone else.Of course a possible bid for Euro 2012 would be a big push for the Italian government to invest in new stadiums.

The stadium that Ama-group designed is also much more than a stadium , because of the retractable roof it can be used for events and concerts, it also has an olimpic swimmingpool, shoppingcenter, fitnesscenter, merchandisingstore...... . All this to make sure that the stadium begins to earn money as soon as it is built and not just during the games, this would bring the pricetag down again.

The biggest problem however is the land for the construction of all this. Lotito, the owner of Lazio says he already owns a big peace of land in Rome (Tiberina-area). He wants to use it to built the stadium so he doesn't have to pay for new land. But according to the plans in Rome this is an : Agricultural Zone. So it can not be used for construction. Lotito of course wants to convince the mayor to give him permission to built the stadium there nevertheless. But it will not be easy, because it would be landspeculation, and although this happened thousands of times in Italy in the past....the city will not be convinced easily to participate in such a project.So now Lotito is threatening to leave the city with his team and to built the stadium outside Rome if he doesn't get permission. But it's just to put pressure on the city-council, Lazio fans would probably never accept their team leaving Rome.

Withing the next year it will become clear if the stadium has a chance or not.

Update :

The stadium is still being discussed by the city council and the owner of Lazio. The debate and political battle continue. Lotito now proposed to donate 30 hectares of land to the city to create a park in order to get permission to construct the stadium. Some new renderings are available and it was also anounced that the final project now aims for 60 000 seats.

Excellent design. Obviously they intend to use transparent membrane material (same as in munich ?) and an accordion-style cover for the rectractable roof. However, looking at the renderings it seems a little bit small for a 60000-all-seater (is this the 40.000-configuration ?).
I hope it gets built.

Looks great.

Nice to see some original designs in Europe, instead of the standard lego-kit design. Roma should build their own football stadium too, the Olimpico is too big for normal games.

nice. This will have a bit more heart, shared stadiums suck, and iv always found the half empty stadiums in Italy depressing and lacking in atmosphere. This will be more like a cauldron every game.

Wouldn´t that cause a greenhouse-effect? I´ve read that transparent membrane is a very good insulating material.
