marassi storiaThe Luigi Ferraris stadium in Genoa is one of the sporting facilities that made the history of Italian football. Inaugurated in 1911 in the neighbourhood of Marassi, it was renamed in 1933 after Luigi Ferraris, an Italian footballer who died during the First World War. Today, it is Italy’s oldest football stadium still in use.

Over the years, it underwent several extension and renovation works, allowing the facility to seat up to 60,000 spectators. In 1990, during the FIFA World Cup disputed in Italy, the stadium was completely rebuilt according to the design of architect Vittorio Gregotti.

The Ferraris stadium is an English-style stadium with the stands very close to the pitch and a capacity of 38,000 spectators.

In 2016 the municipal administration of Genoa entrusted the stadium to the Luigi Ferraris srl company founded by the city’s home football clubs, the Genoa C.F.C. and the U.C. Sampdoria.

The new administration launched a restyling project, worth € 45 million, to be completed over the next three years. The project includes the creation of a “sky box” with luxury lobbies for companies and sponsors, new locker rooms, a congress centre, several entertainment areas, restaurants and stores.

In addition to notable energy savings, perfect light stability and high colour rendering, the new lighting system will also ensure excellent HD TV broadcasting and maximum visual comfort for athletes and viewers.

The new lighting system installed in the Luigi Ferraris stadium includes 240 1392W Forum LED floodlights with 3 different optics, which will replace 368 old generation 2000W floodlights.

The whole system is controlled from a central console that allows setting different lighting scenarios and creating spectacular light plays.
