According to today’s edition of Il Tempo, progress has been made on the front of Stadio della Roma. The project is slowly yet steadily coming to life after the previous plan was scrapped over a year ago.
The latest information regards the stadium’s location. More specifically, the most rumored and well-liked area includes Mercati Generali and Gazometro located in the industrial part of Southern Rome.
The idea is for the stadium to amount to 45,000 seats and have it accessible by public transport only (metro and special shuttle bus for fans).
The Curva Sud would be located in the direction of Basilica di San Paolo while the Curva Nord would be overlooking the Pyramid. Instead of Monte Mario, one of the tribune’s would be called Testaccio, and instead of Tevere, Roma are thinking of naming the other one Garbatella.
There is the preliminary idea of building a station nearby to facilitate the connection with the Roma-Lido railway line and Metro B.
