from the relation | … The project shapes the stadium from the orographic structure of the ground, from the considerations about how the organism can find the right way to be placed, from the reflections on what mutual interactions and perceptions should born between the stadium and the landscape. The focus on the excavation woks and on the in-site reallocation of the soil becomes one of the main principles of the project and suggests specific design methods. The modeling procedure, closely related to the soil clayish nature, is declined throughout the project and is the basis for the definition of a new ground which can accommodate without discontinuity all the expected functions. The design, through the measurement and control of the contour lines, realizes a new topological surface where all the levels are connected without discontinuity. On this reshaped ground lies the new viability, the parking lots are distributed and the paths and walkways are defined, togheter with the open spaces, joined seamlessly with the stadium bleachers. The resulting image is simple. The bleachers are arranged as a cavea in the ground, where the edges follow the evolution of the contour lines. The only elements emerging from the ground are the structure of the air-conditioned grandstand, which hosts all activities required by the competition, and the two semi-transparent towers, which accommodate the technological and lighting equipment and the screens, but which also work as an information device, signaling the stadium entries at distance. The halfway disposition of the organism allows to build the bleachers in the flank of the hill and to work on the opposite side with ramps connecting the different levels where, in areas of easier access, the commercial activities are placed. The pedestrian and bicycle bridge that leads from the stadium to the river and the railway station, reaches all these different levels while connecting the parking areas located along the railway to the entries of the stadium …
