There are several solutions introduced on one theme, that of mobility, which is central due to the large number of spectators who gather to and from the Foro Italico during the events.
The interventions include the creation of manned and guarded areas for parking bicycles, but also dedicated parking for those who adopt sustainable mobility solutions such as “car sharing”, “bike sharing” e “car pooling”.

The energy systems have been equipped with BMS (Building Management System) systems in order to optimize their operation and allow them to be controlled even remotely. A new cogeneration plant also allows the self-production of 1.1 GWh/year of electricity which is used to satisfy the energy needs of the park together with the recovery of 1.7 GWh/year of thermal energy intended for heating the existing swimming pools; any electricity produced in excess of needs is fed into the grid and contributes to lightening the electrical loads in the area.
