Stadio Filadelfia – construction description
After a long series of failed plans to build Torino’s new Serie A stadium at Via Filadelfia between 1985 and 2005, the club decided to settle with a new training center and headquarters at the site of their spiritual home.
In 2011 the club established Fondazione Stadio Filadelfia, a separate entity charged with the duty of planning and carrying out the scheme. Works on the concept were extensive and lasted between April 2012 and October 2014. The refined scheme was divided into three phases.
First and most important part will include the main training stadium and secondary field, both with natural turf. Player facilities will be located in the stadium’s main stand, erected in the place of the original one built in 1926. The new one will house 2,000 seated and covered fans, while also comprising 5 floors of space for various uses and 50 covered parking spaces. Around the field additional terraces will be built for further 2,000 spectators.
Second stage will bring the Memory Plaza, including restoration of last remnants of old Stadio Filadelfia – the western corner sections. Third and last, the complex’s east side (along Via Giordano Bruno) will see a two-floor Museo del Toro club museum.
