Sport Facilities: Campo Testaccio

Over the past few months the spotlight has been on the Olympics and the new stadium in Rome, but there are many cases of forgotten facilities: Santiago Calatrava’s “shark fin” and his unfinished Olympic complex at Tor Vergata, the abandoned state of the Flaminio Stadium structure, the old velodrome and the old stadium of Rome. As well as these, the small neighbourhood services share the same fate.

The wall is Campo Testaccio, the legendary football stadium of AS Roma football team, today a no-place that symbolizes all the forgotten sport facilities.
