With the installation of the two video walls, the replacement of all the seats, the renovated audio facilities and lights, as well as the new athletic track and changing rooms, the Fuorigrotta facilities - a statement says - "is now avantgarde, one of the most modern and functional stadiums of Italy". On Friday afternoon, a trial run was done on the video wall placed on the 'Tribuna Nisida' by technicians from the Deltronics company.
