Marco Polo Stadium in Venice

Venice - 1999

It is a football stadium with mobile roofing. The structural system of this roof is essentially formed by:
  • main longitudinal arches with considerable span make up the main supporting structure.
  • lateral roofing of the stands which covers the stand areas of the external border and the longitudinal arch; the adopted type for this structure is made by circular configuration reticular beams, arranged in a radial manner.
  • Central roofing with fixed and mobile panels, made by two types of structure: one fixed and the other mobile (corresponding to the football pitch area which is equal to about 90 x 110 metres); the type foreseen for this structure is reticular spatial structure with hot rolled open profiles; the driving mechanism is crucial for roofing movement.
  • Roof covering is made by a pre-stressed material membrane system.
