Nuovo Stadio Milano (II) – design description
Called 'The Rings of Milano', this vision for a new stadium emphasises the unique bond between AC Milan and FC Inter. Each of the clubs is represented by one of two interlocking rings creating the outer wrap. They're interlocked, so opposed to one-another on one hand and bound together on the other.
The rings are to be illuminated in club colours of each team during derby night, while on other occasions they would both take on the colour of whichever club plays as host. By day, up to 17,000 images of supporters could be etched into the facade.
Despite the capacity of 60,000, auditorium would be divided into just two tiers, which in some way associates the stadium to San Siro, where the two lower levels hold similar numbers. Contrary to many new stadiums, there would be no hospitality areas behind goals, each 'curva' would be dedicated to fans of one of the two host teams.
One more recognition of the beloved San Siro would be placed outside, east of the new stadium. In the location of demolished San Siro, even if rebuilt atop commercial and leisure facilities, there would be an open playing field, created exactly where the current pitch is.
Both presented variants of the future stadium would see it built beside San Siro, which would then be demolished and replaced with mixed-use development. The stadium itself would be surrounded by a vast podium, elevated by 2m from ground space, releasing 127,000 m2 of space on ground level for various uses. The field itself would be 7m below ground level so that the stadium doesn't become too imposing in size.
While analysed between 55,000 and 65,000, the official listed capacity is 60,000 and should meet the demand of both Milan and Inter. Contrary to San Siro's under 4,000 premium seats, a new stadium would provide up to 12,500 such seats, depending on demand, while also providing a bowl that would not emit much noise to neighbours, limited at 60db.
