Stadio Flaminio


Europe, Italy, Rome

The Stadio Flaminio is a stadium in Rome. It lies along the Via Flaminia, three kilometres northwest of the city centre, 300 metres away from the Parco di Villa Glori. The interior spaces include a covered swimming pool, rooms for fencing, amateur wrestling, weightlifting, boxing and gymnastics. It was the home of Italy rugby union national team in its Six Nations tournament home matches. Stadio Flaminio is also the home of Atletico Roma F.C., an association football team playing in Lega Pro Prima Divisione. With a capacity of 32,000 (8,000 covered), it is the smallest of the Six Nations stadiums. It is no longer considered big enough for the Italian national team and there are frequent reports that the national team will be moving to Genoa or to the Stadio Olimpico di Roma. This change was confirmed with the Italian Federation becoming upset at broken promises of renovations, the final decision was a move to Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence) .
