Abstract

At the end of the Fifties the Italian Capital is lively involved in the preparation of XVII Olympic Games and despite the preference for reinforced concrete in the building of great stadiums and athletes accommodations, metal construction is largely used: it fits economic, building and functional requirements established by the technical committee named C.O.R. Steel structures are built both in the urban context and outside of it, for the realisation of sport facilities characterised by low management costs and innovative configurations. The contribution tries to reconstruct the episodes which have as main character steel, elective material for these forgotten architectures, that is able to translate in appealing and winsome shapes the agonistic crossing of the line, recalled by the Olympic motto “Citius!, Altius!, Fortius!”.
