The research activity focused on the construction of four architectural models of selected projects by Pier Luigi Nervi: the Giovanni Berta municipal stadium project in Florence (1929–32), the Flaminio stadium project in Rome (1956–59), the Swindon Stadium tribune project (unbuilt of 1963–66) and the Kuwait Sport Center stadium project (unbuilt of 1968–69). The models were displayed to the public in an exhibition that involved different institutions such as the Alma Mater University of Bologna and the MAXXI in Rome (National Museum of the Arts of the XXI century). The intent was to highlight the formal structural and geometric aspects of the selected works, in relation to specific design phases considered relevant. In particular, for the Flaminio and the Berta stadium projects, the models show some interpretations that do not represent their current configuration but which refer to design choices deducible from the original materials.

Abstract

The research activity focused on the construction of four architectural models of selected projects by Pier Luigi Nervi: the Giovanni Berta municipal stadium project in Florence (1929–32), the Flaminio stadium project in Rome (1956–59), the Swindon Stadium tribune project (unbuilt of 1963–66) and the Kuwait Sport Center stadium project (unbuilt of 1968–69). The models were displayed to the public in an exhibition that involved different institutions such as the Alma Mater University of Bologna and the MAXXI in Rome (National Museum of the Arts of the XXI century). The intent was to highlight the formal structural and geometric aspects of the selected works, in relation to specific design phases considered relevant. In particular, for the Flaminio and the Berta stadium projects, the models show some interpretations that do not represent their current configuration but which refer to design choices deducible from the original materials.
