Eurovillage 2022 Is On The Move

In an article today by Corriere della sera about changes to the ATP Tennis finals, some interesting news was revealed about some technical details regarding Eurovision 2022. Back in January, it was announced that Piazza d’Armi – directly in front of the Eurovision venue PalaOlimpico – would be the site where the Delegation Area and the Press Centre will be built.

Today we can confirm that the American architecture studio Populous will be responsible for the construction of those two sites near the stadium. This was revealed as organizers for the ATP Finals will likely look to what Populous does for Eurovision, as inspiration for what can be built to support the tennis finals. Populous has built many iconic arenas and venues across the globe, including T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the Winter Olimpics’ Ovals in Turin and Beijing, and the new Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai.

As for the Eurovillage, it had previsously been planned for Piazza San Carlo, however the new idea is to make it a village spread over several locations across Turin, using the model from the 2006 Winter Olympics, when each nation had its own “home base”. With multiple piazzas across the city centre of Turin, organizers certainly have a lot of space to play around with!
