    Il Messaggero newspaper reports that the Serie A football club AS Roma would have chosen the site that is scheduled to host their new stadium: the Pietralata. The Friedkin family wants the 'Stadio della Roma' nearby the Roma Tiburtina Rail Station, in an area that is a "void" within the full urban fabric, so as not to have to build mobility infrastructures from scratch as envisaged by the former club owner in Tor di Valle. The choice was then to think of a site inside the city center, the redevelopment of a public-owned abandoned site but the club would get 99-years of surface rights. The stadium would resemble "a sort of acropolis placed in a dominant position on the top of the tuffaceous relief" in such a way as to guarantee orderly inflow and outflow and safety in the event of an emergency evacuation.

    According to the papers, the Giallorossi club has decided to take Arsenal's Emirates Stadium as a reference model: "4 Uefa stars, 60,000 seats", although from the first sketches, it seems that more than the classic oval shape we can turn towards a slightly more squared-off solution, so much so that we are talking about “north, south, east and west stands” and “corners” rather than classic curves. The project would comprise a commercial-tertiary village, a sports center, a public park.

    The stadium would be reachable by private vehicles. The area to be reserved for buses, cars and motorcycles would range from 70 thousand up to 124 thousand square meters, with places for motorcycles swinging from 7 thousand to almost 10 thousand; parking spaces between two thousand and 5,000 and about thirty coach spaces. Apart from the number of spectators, the simulations were made taking as a basis the same method of access to the stadium as hypothesized at the time of the project studied for di Tor di Valle, 52% of the public by public transport and the rest by private transport. On these parameters, simulations were modulated with an increase in the percentage of mobility with public transport up to 60%. This explains the differences which, in terms of spectators, range from about 12 thousand to over 13 thousand with motorcycles; from 8 thousand to 14 thousand with cars; from 1,000 to 2,000 by coaches and from 30,000 to 35,000 by public transport.

    But the stadium would be reachable above all by public transport thanks to its proximity to Tiburtina Station (Rome's second busiest rail station and one of the busiest in Italy, served by high-speed rail trains of the national service and regional trains, but also those coming from the Roma Leonardo Da Vinci Intercontinental Airport and viceversa) and the B line of the Rome subway.

    AS Roma and the Municipality have also planned two cycle and pedestrian bridges: the first will be a "pedestrian-cycle path" which will directly connect the new stadium with the Tiburtina station. The second will be at via Livorno and, bypassing the beam of the railway tracks, an element of direct connection "with the Nomentano district and with the B / B1 metro station in Piazza Bologna".

    Work continues at the Stadio San Nicola in Bari where the city continues on repairs on the structure and re-seating of the entire stadium. Also at the same time the field is being gutted and the drainage system re-done (it hasn't been maintained since Italia 90' :thumbsup:) A new roof is expected to begin work in August/ September. I know people laugh at these works and for good reason, but for what it is, the San Nicola is serviceable if it is maintained. At least now the Italian national team can return to playing games there. There was a point where the FIGC was scheduling a match in Bari every August. I hope the athletic track is covered with fake turf as it is in Bologna

    In order for the San Nicola to really be a world class stadium, it needs to remove the athletic track like the Estadio Mineirao in Brazil. Same with the San Paolo in Naples and Bentegodi in Verona

    Absolutely. Athletic tracks are a thing of the past at major stadiums; sadly there presence in Italy reminds us of the little investment in infrastructure over the last 30 years.

    In the biggest WTF news of the day. It seems that Avellino stadium project is going ahead and the old partenio will begin demolition this summer. If this goes through barring any disaster, the new Partenio will be the best stadium in southern Italy. Keep in mind, this is a team that plays in Serie C
