Stadio Olimpico

Stadio Olimpico

Italy have always played their home international rugby matches at the modest surroundings of the Stadio Flaminio but from 2012 they competed in the considerably larger and prestigious Stadio Olimpico.

It means the team stay in Rome but they will now share the stadium with Serie A football clubs Roma and Lazio, while the 82,307 capacity trumps the 25,000 capacity of the Stadio Flaminio and should provide a much greater atmosphere.

Italy will be hoping that the increased home support can help them go on to better things in the Six Nations.

The stadium is primarily used for football since it was opened in 1937, although it is also Italy's national athletics stadium and hosts a variety of concerts.
