Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence, Italy

Stadio Artemio Franchi is a football stadium in Florence, Italy. It is currently the home of ACF Fiorentina. The stadium was temporarily noticed as the host of Italy's Six Nations matches from 2012. The old nickname of the stadium was "Comunale." The stadium was built in 1931 and holds 47,290. The architect is Pier Luigi Nervi (known for the Nervi Hall in the Vatican) and it is one of the most relevant examples of 20th century architecture in the city.
The stadium is built entirely of reinforced concrete with a 70 meter (230 ft) tower that bears the stadium's flagstaff. The tower is called the "Tower of Marathon". Around the base of the tower, spiral ramps lead from the ground floor to the upper edge of the grandstand. The stadium was originally called the "Comunale" but was renamed after the former FIGC president, Artemio Franchi in 1991. The monumental entrance of the stadium is the same as in 1931 except for the inscription.
