5 Feb-2 Oct. Rome’s MAXXI Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI secolo hosts an exhibition examining the innovative sporting facilities designed by Italian engineer and architect Pier Luigi Nervi (1891-1979).
On display are plans, models, photographs and three-dimensional graphic presentations for over 60 Italian and international sports projects, outlining Nervi's design processes and construction methods.
The exhibition spans his career from early works such as the 1931 Stadio Berta in Florence (today known as Stadio Artemio Franchi) to the Palazzetto dello Sport in Rome's Flaminio district, built for the 1960 Olympics, through to major international projects such as the Kuwait Sports Centre in 1968.
