The project’s target was to create, a kind, Multi-Events Arena in the center of Milan to involve a wide range of public, children, and adults, whether they join in as active participants or spectators. The proposal aims to revitalize the historic building into a modern context by creating an innovative integrated structure that focuses on the footprint of the existing building to strengthen the historic and symbolic value of the former Maspes Vigorelli Velodrome. Easy accessibility to the field and new storage spaces allow the new structure to accommodate a wide variety of sports, entertainment, and educational activities in a safe and secure environment. It will be possible to quickly transform the facilities according to different requirements from sports teams and resident sportspeople, extreme sports, sports tournaments, seasonal and annual events, or daily use for schools.
