Description: Gewiss Stadium

The ground was built in 1928, receiving the name of Mario Brumana, a Fascist hero. Two opening ceremonies took place. First there was a football game on November 1st, then an official ceremony including numerous officials on December 23rd. At that time the ground had two stands alongside the pitch, each with elegant facades that exist to this day. West stand was covered while the opposite one had no roof. together they could accommodate up to 12,000 people.

After Fascism ended name was changed to Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia, but ironically it was the athletics track that was removed in the course of redevelopments that also saw the east stand receive a roof and the ground have floodlight masts mounted. However the venue is still elliptical as uncovered curves behind goals were built when the track was still in place.

At the end of April 2019, a major redevelopment of the stadium began, the main aim of which was to remove the curves behind the goals and replace them with new, larger and more modern stands, located just behind the end lines of the pitch. The first phase involved rebuilding the stand behind the north goal.

The new stand was opened to fans as early as the beginning of October 2019. The second stage was the reconstruction of the east stand, preserving the historic facade. This work was carried out in summer 2020, at which time the old south stand was also equipped with new seats on an occasional basis. The complete reconstruction of this stand will be the final phase of work, which is scheduled to begin in May 2022 and be completed in summer 2023.
