Design: Massimo Guidotti
The new Armando Picchi Stadium should be built in the same place of the present one reusing, indeed, only the football field, but limiting the size of the whole sports facility, which will not include the running track, but bleachers which will be placed at a distance of 7.5 metres from the pitch, giving to the spectators a great visibility and transforming them into the twelfth player.
The stadium, with a capacity of 20,000 covered seats, leans on a two-storey facility platform where shops, gym, Livorno society’s offices, food and vip area make the stadium alive and productive every days of the week.
The area dedicated to the changing room, training area, referees’ rooms is the EFTE facade alternated by the rings which make it dynamic and elegant at the same time. This element will make the stadium a new symbol of the town.
The skin will be opaque during the day while at night it will become a red lantern, thanks to a led system positioned within the external bearing structure on which is anchored the fabric and it will became a sort of lamp which will report all the matches of Livorno Calcio and various events such as concerts, festivals, etc.
The photovoltaic roof will lower significally the operating costs of the sports facility.
