“San Nicola” Stadium, Bari (Italy)

The San Nicola Stadium in Bari is the largest sports facility in Apulia and the fourth largest stadium in Italy. The structure of the stadium resembles a flower and consists of 26 tiers, defined by architect Renzo Piano as ‘petals’. Tiers are linked to each other by a steel, stainless steel and Teflon roof which protects the audience from rain and the afternoon sun.
