STADIO GIUSEPPE MEAZZA
Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, originally and commonly referred to as the San Siro because of its location, is a football stadium located in the San Siro district in Milan, Italy. It is the home of both A.C. Milan and F.C. Internazionale Milano. The stadium is named in honour of Giuseppe Meazza, the two-time World Cup winner (1934, 1938) who played for Internazionale, and briefly for Milan, in the 1930s and 1940s. It held UEFA five-star stadium status which was superseded by a new system of classification.
The stadium construction started in 1925 in the district of Milan named San Siro. Originally called "Nuovo Stadio Calcistico San Siro" (San Siro New Football Stadium), it was eventually renamed "Stadio Giuseppe Meazza" in 1980, in honour of Giuseppe Meazza.
The stadium underwent further renovations for the 1990 World Cup with $60 million being spent, bringing the stadium up to UEFA 5-star standard. As part of the renovations, the stadium became all seated, with an extra tier being added to three sides of the stadium. This entailed the building of 11 concrete towers around the outside of the stadium. Four of these concrete towers located at the corner to support a new roof which has distinctive protruding red girders.
