The distinctive, partially-domed Stadio Olimpico is a stadium located inside the Foro Italico sports complex intended primarily to host soccer games. One of Rome’s largest and most important sports facility, the stadium opened in 1937 as the Stadio dei Cipressi, and is currently the home of rival soccer clubs Lazio and Roma. The stadium hosted the ceremonies of the 1960 Olympic Games, the 1987 World Championship in Athletics, and served as the main stadium for the 1990 FIFA World Cup. Vast re-stylings and restructuring of the stadium were completed in 1990 and 2008, which expanded seating and modernized facilities. Outside of soccer, the stadium hosts concerts, rugby games, and various kinds of other events.
