Mapei Stadium, Reggio Emilia, Italy, 1994

The Mapei Stadium, initially Stadio Giglio and later renamed Stadio Città del Tricolore, is an Italian sports facility located in Reggio Emilia.

Built on behalf of the Reggiana football club (the first example of a privately owned stadium in Italy in the post-war period) starting from August 1994 and completed in April 1995, two kilometers from the city centre. It was taken over in 2013 by Mapei, the owner and principal sponsor of Sassuolo.

Seat capacity: 21.525



Mapei Stadium, DZE project, from 2014 to present

The Mapei Stadium has been the subject of a series of maintenance and improvement works since 2014 carried out by DZ Engineering aiming both at guaranteeing the values ​​shared by FIGC and UEFA, and at ensuring television productions worthy of what has once again become a gem of a stadium. The replacement of the entire lighting system in 2014 was followed by the introduction of projectors on the roof of the central grandstand built in 2015, the year in which the minimum lighting requirements for the Serie A Football Championship were revised upwards.

In the following years, working sparingly, it has in fact continued to focus attention on the quality, rather than the quantity, of light (if at all necessary), trying to trace a path that unites levels of colour rendering and, above all, uniformity far beyond the minimum levels prescribed for a careful management of resources and that of the system as a whole.
