Ascoli new stadium of the architect Massimo Guidotti is built on the area now occupied by the old facility; due to the elimination of the current athletics track and the repositioning of the bleachers to just 7.50 meters from the pitch, the stadium is more compact in size and makes the spectators the “twelfth man on the field.”
The considerable ground level difference in the North-South direction, which characterizes the area, is eliminated by the creation of a ring which completely surrounds the stadium, creating two distinct areas, completely independent of each other: the first, located at road level, destined to the commercial area and services; the second, represented by the ring, accessible by wide ramps, is the area of pre-filtering.
The bleachers are completely covered by a Teflon roof which varies from a minimum height of +12.80 m to a maximum of +17.40 m, above the two grandstands, creating a kind of wave, whose sinuous shape emphasizes the lightness of the structure and integrates perfectly into the surrounding landscape.
The stadium will be located inside a green concept area, which will connect it to the existing urban fabric, through a new road.
In this context the creation of three new mixed-use buildings (commercial, offices, hotels and spa) and their car parks (500 cars) are planned in the two neighboring parks. Source by Massimo Guidotti Architetto.
