After the success of the new Cagliari Calcio stadium, Progetto CMR together with Sportium signs the concept of the new Calcio Padua stadium


“It is a project that goes beyond the stadium, it will be a large scale initiative for the future of Padua that will create new jobs and regenerate the whole area”: ​​with these words the President of Calcio Padova, Mr Roberto Bonetto, presented the project of the new Padua Calcio stadium.

The project is signed by Sportium and is part of a larger redevelopment of the area surrounding the stadium, which includes the future Citadel of Sport, developed by the Asci Studio Architect, and a Retail Park, designed by IPT Project.


The new stadium will replace the existing Euganeo stadium, providing the city of Padua with an innovative structure in line with the highest standards of functionality and security provided by UEFA. In order to minimize the impact of the demolition operations of the existing plant and the construction of the new one, the intervention requires that the two activities proceed in parallel and in successive steps, thus avoiding that the team remains without a stadium able to host the matches.

The architectural concept of the new stadium, designed by Progetto CMR (founding partner of Sportium), starts from some typical elements of the city of Padua to recreate a strong and symbiotic relationship with the context: water, which inspired the sinuous shapes of the landscape surrounding the stadium, and the traditional porticoes, which are revisited creating a path around the plant that is totally permeable and accessible. Finally, the structures of the stands are conceived by taking up the forms of the Appiani stadium, symbol of the city of Padua.

Inside, great attention was paid to the experience of the spectators: the seats and the stands were designed with the aim of maximizing the view from all possible angles, to offer a totally immersive experience eliminating the track around the field.


The new stadium, designed for a capacity of 16,500 spectators, will also host complementary activities such as the museum of the team, shops and restaurants, transforming the complex from a place that can only be used during sports events to a new meeting place, open every day to the community.
