The ICOMOS International Scientific Committee on 20th Century Heritage (ISC20C), in collaboration with the Pier Luigi Nervi Project Association, are issuing this Heritage Alert for the Stadio Artemio Franchi (Pier Luigi Nervi, 1929-31) in Florence, Italy. The Stadio Artemio Franchi is an early and important work of Italian engineer and builder Pier Luigi Nervi and is under imminent threat of destruction due to plans by the Municipality of Florence and the Fiorentina football club to build a new stadium on its site. Recent legislation by the Italian government that relax heritage and conservation requirements are enabling these plans to move forward. ICOMOS and the Pier Luigi Nervi Project Association are seeking an immediate halt to these plans and request that a full study be conducted to determine the existing stadium's actual condition and what change is necessary for its continued viability as a cultural and athletics venue.
