Sport citadel aims to generate a true acropolis of competitiveness. It will be a global reference to practice, study, and celebrate multiple disciplines. Prior to a training space, it will be a space to live. It will be a space where to materialize the dream of harmony, overcoming limits, and pursuit of excellence, in which the sport practice is grounded. It will be a unique and fascinating challenge. In fact, designing an area means creating a sanctuary for the display of the sporting spectacle.
Moreover, it means giving a reference to the community. It means creating a place where to hope and rejoice, be moved and touched. Here, thousands of hearts can be turned on in unison by one of the passions that have always been inflaming men and women of all times: sport.
