Project description

Since 1980 San Siro Stadium, so called from the name of the Milanese district it is in, has been named after Giuseppe Meazza, one of the greatest Italian football players who played for Inter and Milan.

Not only is the stadium one of the symbols of Milan, but it is also one of the most famous sports facilities in the world. Over the years it acquired the appellation of “The Scala Theatre of soccer” thanks to the prestige and the importance of the events it hosted and it goes on hoisting.

On the occasion of the 1990 FIFA World Cup the current building of the stadium was considerably renovated and redeveloped, with the construction of a third level of bleachers, that stood over some stair towers, independent of the existing structures and of prestressed reinforced concrete curved beams. A new steel roof structure was also built for all bleachers.
