As reported by Italian newspaper La Repubblica (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti president has an idea of what he’d like to do with the Stadio Flaminio, keen to move out of Lazio’s current home the Stadio Olimpico.
Lotito is working hard and has already obtained a copy of the facility preservation plan developed by Sapienza University in collaboration with the Getty Foundation, looking to expand it to hold 40,000 fans.
Lazio’s plan would be to take over the facility and then leave it to the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti to develop the area. There would be a mini-golf course that would be played with a football, mountain bike tracks and a skate park, as well as an adventure park for families, beach volleyball and basketball courts.
In summary, an area dedicated to outdoor sports for the neighbourhood.
There’s no shortage of ideas but there are still obstacles from a bureaucratic point of view. Lotito still needs to find an agreement with the Superintendence.
This is a long-term project and significant developments are not expected for some time.
