So, the news we got the other day of - my team - AS ROMA - releasing the plans for their very own stadium was something to look forward to. Or, as the following fab football fan & blogger put it, very forward considering the Romans have been waiting for their own stadium for the better part of half a century. Why all the fuss? They share a stadium with their arch-rival, the lily-colored Lazio team. But more than that, the new stadium is outright gorgeous. And, it is inspired (as well it should be) by our very own antiquated Anfiteatro Flavio, replete with rooftop and all [although I haven't looked in to see if it can be rolled back on less sunny days].
And since Enzo, "a footballaholic in New Zealand" put things right in a Burnt sort of perspective, he's graciously allowed me to reprint his post about the hullaboo right here [and for that, he will be forgiven for using the colors of Lazio for his title]. Check it out.
