The success of Venezia FC is driving new opportunities for the City of Venice. ROSSETTI’s masterplan for a new sport anchored development, located in a rural area of Venice, includes a new 25,000-seat stadium for Venezia FC, a 7,500 seat theatre, 430,000 SF of commercial space and an 80 room hotel development. The design reflects the context of the Venetian landscape using natural elements and celebrated characteristics. Inspired by Venetian Murano Glass, the stadium design uses a “bowl within a bowl” concept and the integration of the St-Marks iconic winged Lion as a symbol of Venice. The mixed-use development is rooted in an urban village concept, with aspiration as a catalyst to future surrounding development.
