The Piscina delle Rose


Description and technical data
Close to the Palazzo dello Sport lies the " Roses Swimming Pool " which during the Rome Games was used for training and for the elimination rounds of the Waterpolo Tournament.
This venue was also planned by the Italian National Olympic Committee not only because of the Olympic Games, but especially for the future sports requirements of the Capital.
The Roses Swimming Pool, devised and directed by engineer Mario Biuso, measures 50 m. in length and 25 m. in width and its depth varies from 1.80 to 2 m. in the portion where waterpolo events take place. The venue, constructed in reinforced concrete, is equipped with dressing-rooms (63 cabins) for both men and women, thus allowing the public also to make use of the pool in periods when the venue is not being used for competitions.
