On the outside I’m sure this stadium looks like a capsule, but thisparticular Gino Zavanella creation unveiled in Italy recently istotally plastered in energy-generating photovoltaic panels. Named‘Franco Sensi’ is not just the usual stadium, but will also boast ofRome’s football teams museum, restaurants, lounges and even bars. Thereis a band of LED screen around the perimeter of the stadium. Thisenergy efficient band features one layer covered by solar photovoltaicpanels, as well as a second translucent layer that lets in 80% of alllight while preventing water from hitting stadium patrons.
