A state-of-the-art, modern and inclusive stadium

The restyling of the Arechi Stadium in Salerno is a revolutionary project that will breathe new life into the existing facility, transforming it into a state-of-the-art stadium where safety, sustainability and quality come together with the excellence of world-class soccer.
Respect and appreciation for the city, the team and its fans are the basis of the conception of the project.

At the core is a focus on sustainability through the use of cutting-edge technologies that minimize environmental impact and maximize energy efficiency. The new stadium is totally inclusive, with no architectural or social barriers. It is a place that combines passion for sports with respect for the environment and love for the community.

International Standards

The Stadium, in its current state, has spectator stands arranged in two rings. The lower ring presents strong visibility criticalities. The project involves the demolition and subsequent construction of the lower ring as a natural extension of the upper one, obtaining better visibility and a compact bowl.

On the new stands built in the corners, glazed volumes are planned to accommodate hospitality spaces and terraces and allow visual continuity from the playing field toward the sea.
Eighteen new Skyboxes will also be built, ideal for experiencing the excitement of the game in a private and exclusive environment.

The new roof will help improve the experience and comfort of all spectators, acoustic dispersion, and lighting and photovoltaic panels will be integrated.

The new facade will give visual and functional identity to the new Stadium. It is a skin that runs along the entire perimeter at the new roof. The aluminum with its reflective action captures the light constantly changing the perception of the facade, imitating the reflected light play of the sea waves.

The project will create spaces with a high degree of flexibility, which on match days will function as lounges and during the week will host events and conferences.
