The Italian professional football club Atalanta BC and the Municipality of Bergamo (Italy) is on with the process of completing the refurbishment of the Gewiss Stadium: The first two levels have been completed with the demolition and reconstruction of the Pisani Curve and the rearrangement of the Renaissance Tribune. The duo are now preparing for the third summer of construction. The club has recently filed the new implementation plan defined in agreement with the municipal administration and which will be formally approved by the Giunta Gori in the coming weeks.

‘Atalanta BC’ stated that construction work is slated to start by September 2021 and work should last several months. Interventions will be planned while the Euro 2020 is in progress.

Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio, commonly referred to as Atalanta, is a professional football club based in Bergamo, Lombardy, Italy. The club plays in Serie A, having gained promotion from Serie B in 2010-2011.

Stadio di Bergamo, known for sponsorship reasons as the Gewiss Stadium since July 2019, is a stadium in Bergamo, Italy. It is the home of Atalanta BC and has a capacity of 21,000 seats. The field is 120 m long and 70 m wide.

The Gewiss Stadium will be expanded to 25,000 seats and will conform to the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA)/Italian Olympic Committee (CONI)/Italian Football Federation (FIGC) criterion.

‘Atalanta BC’ further stated that the works for the construction of the underground car park will also start (and must be completed no later than four months from the usability of the Morosini Curve): One hundred and thirty five places will be affiliated for public use, another 253 places will be at Atalanta. An underground right has been established for 99 years for the construction of a private underground car park and a public use agreement.

On the other hand, 100 parking spaces will be available on the square in front of the Morosini Curve, above the underground car park: The traditional and much popular Saturday market will remain where it is, and there will be an increase of green cover.

Piazzale Goisis – a new square with trees and green flower beds will come up in lieu of the current concrete esplanade – a place available to the neighborhood and which actually completes the net improvement of the public space around the Gewiss Stadium.

The communication network will be streamlined with the construction of new roundabouts, designed to streamline traffic in the area, and the redevelopment of Lazzaretto.

Commented Giorgio Gori, Mayor of Bergamo, “I am very satisfied with the work that is going on in Gewiss Stadium – not only because we achieve the goal of equipping the City with a European level sports structure, up to the standards achieved by Atalanta. With the vaccine rollout, we hope for an improvement in the coronavirus scenario and hope that the facility will soon be able to open its doors again to spectators.”

Stated Antonio Percassi, President, Atalanta BC, “It is with great gusto that we are preparing to start the third batch of redevelopment works of the Gewiss Stadium, the home of Atalanta BC, the stadium of all Atalanta fans. A great collaboration and a great coordination work have allowed us, in a very short time, to create first the new Curva Nord Pisani and then the Renaissance Tribune. Now it is the turn of the Curva Sud Morosini which will also make it possible to redevelop the spaces adjacent to the same curve that the City, but in particular the neighborhood, has.”

Noted Francesco Valesini, City Councilor for Urban Redevelopment of Bergamo, “This agreement makes it possible to complete most of the works planned for the redevelopment of the stadium in a single last lot, reconciling the works on the South curve with the public works more relevant, without having to move the league matches to other stadia in Northern Italy.”
