Stadio San Vito-Gigi Marulla
Cosenza Football Club


City of Cosenza (inhabitants: 67k city, 714k province) - Calabria region - Italy

***​

"We want to build a new stadium" said Cosenza mayor, Mario Occhiuto. "During my last visit in Rome, I met the Commissioner of Credito Sportivo Italiano (Italian Credit for Sports) and representatives of Lega Serie B. We agreed on the fact that we can build a new sports plant for the city of Cosenza" said Occhiuto. "We also discussed about the necessary financial resources to build it, the target of new fans and complementary use of this new stadium. Other important factors we have considered are: comfort, easy access to all, quality of services. Great attention will be paid to so-called 'hospitality areas', the market potential for the commercial and alternative functions" he said.

"We aims for an attractive stadium, opened 7/7 days, all seasons of the year. A stadium that is a major regional destination both for sporting and entertainment events, as well as a cultural and commercial area with a lot of daily attendance. We also hope that this stadium is an important construction for physical and social regeneration of the neighborhoods of San Vito and Popilia. The stadium will be built in a strategic area along Campagnano River, surrounded by new green spaces. Among other our goals there is the creation of new jobs, commercial activities, services around the stadium" Occhiuto added.

City awarded proposal for new Cosenza stadium. Next step is the executive project.

"It will be a great work of architecture that recalls the sinuosity of a female body, but also inspired by a shell. At night it will be backlit. The city of Cosenza must have an avant-garde sports venue" said the Mayor. "It will not be just a stadium but a place for sports and cultural activities, with cinema halls, gyms, commercial areas, museum and more. All the outdoor areas will be redeveloped by creating ecological corridors and open spaces for wellness and sport".

"The executive project will be implemented taking into account the most advanced technologies and the indications furnished by the city administration" said the Mayor.

Intervention work:
1st phase: demolition of the Curva Donato Bergamini and the Curva Massimiliano Catena; refurbishment and upgrading of the Tribuna A and Tribuna B.
2nd phase: construction of the new Curva Nord and the new Curva Sud.

The stadium will have sky-boxes, a photovoltaic system and a ventilated roof. Total capacity: 24,000 seats.
