Italy: Construction Of CTS Eventim’s Milan Arena Begins
CTS Eventim sent out a press release today, stating that the go-ahead for what it describes as “Italy’s largest and most innovative multipurpose arena” has begun.
The German live entertainment giant commissioned underground engineering specialists TREVI with the first construction phase, which is already being set up on site at Milano Santa Giulia, a green and residential district currently under construction in Milan’s south-east.
The Arena Santa Giulia will be “the largest and most modern multifunctional hall in Italy,” according to CTS Eventim, who got renowned architect David Chipperfield and international consultants Arup to join forces on the design.

According to the press release, TREVI “is already setting up the construction site and will start driving in the first piles that will form the new arena’s deep foundations.”
The contractor that’ll actually build the arena will be chosen over the coming weeks.
Construction of the 16,000-capacity building is expected to take around two and a half years. The project design includes a piazza with more than 10,000 square meters of space for open-air events. “The ensemble will be a prime location for national and international live events, and will be part of CTS Eventim portfolio of world-class venues,” the press release concludes.
Klaus-Peter Schulenberg, CEO of CTS Eventim, commented, “We are now looking forward to the next phase of construction. TREVI has decades of experience with this type of specialised foundation work, which will ensure a successful start to the arena’s construction. Together, we aim to create a high-quality events venue in Italy that will transform Milan into an attractive hub for the sports and entertainment industries with a global reach.”
