Mapei Football Center Sassuolo

A celebration of the Mapei Football Center’s pioneering architectural concept, which makes its facilities available to the general public.
Milan-based architecture firm Onsitestudio has designed a new training campus for the Italian Serie A soccer club US Sassuolo Calcio. Located in the town of Sassuolo, and inaugurated in 2019, it is a functional-modernist yet highly atmospheric structure that provides the professionals of US Sassuolo Calcio with state-of-the-art training facilities and offices. As part of a pioneering social engagement of the club, its playing fields and other amenities are also available to local amateur teams and for recreational sports.
This book features the Mapei Football center through newly taken color and black-and-white photographs by Stefano Graziani and Filippo Romano, as well as floorplans, sections, and construction detail drawings. Complementary essays are contributed by Onsitestudio’s founding partners Giancarlo Floridi and Angelo Lunati, British historian and football expert John Foot, and Italian architect and intellectual Pier Paolo Tamburelli.
