The Olympic Velodrome

Description

Description Technical Data
The Olympic Velodrome at the E.U.R. was planned by architects Cesare Ligini, Dagoberto Ortensi and Silvano Ricci, winners of the competition organised by the C.O.N.I. between Italian engineers and architects. The precious collaboration of the Management of the E.U.R. facilitated the task of the choice of site. Thus the building took shape in the zone of the Viale dell'Oceano Pacifico, on a total area of 65,000 sq. metres. The work was directed by engineer Francesco Guidi.
