The masterplan for the Nitto ATP Finals, hosted in Turin from November 14 to 21, was signed by architect Benedetto Camerana, winner in November 2020 of the Beauty Contest launched by the Italian Tennis Federation (FIT) with Awe International Group (group leader), KPMG Sport and Nielsen Sports, Arriva Italia and Politecnico di Torino, winning over a group of 9 other candidates including Carlo Ratti Associati, Italdesign and Michele De Lucchi, Pininfarina and Matteo Gatto & Associati, We Plan and Armando Testa.
Camerana gave shape to the needs of an event of international relevance, which brought to Italy the most important world professionals of tennis and which will be repeated in the City for the next 4 years. In fact, the Savoy capital will host the Nitto ATP Finals from 2021 to 2025.
The interventions designed by Camerana are two:
– the transformation of Pala Alpitour, designed by the «Pritzker» prize winner Arata Isozaki, for ice hockey competitions during the 2006 Winter Olympics, with the construction of new lounges, commentators’ boxes, new parterre stands and a training field.
-two pavilions in Piazza San Carlo (Turin), one of the monumental baroque centers of the city, two symmetrical pavilions with one floor, 85×10 meters each, for the sponsors and institutions that support the event.
The facilities will also be used during the finals of the Davis Cup, the 109th edition of the world tournament between men’s national tennis teams, to be held Nov. 25-29.
