    On the outside I’m sure this stadium looks like a capsule, but this particular Gino Zavanella creation unveiled in Italy recently is totally plastered in energy-generating photovoltaic panels. Named ‘Franco Sensi’ is not just the usual stadium, but will also boast of Rome’s football teams museum, restaurants, lounges and even bars. There is a band of LED screen around the perimeter of the stadium. This energy efficient band features one layer covered by solar photovoltaic panels, as well as a second translucent layer that lets in 80% of all light while preventing water from hitting stadium patrons. In the past Solar Powered stadiums have been created, Tokyo having been the pioneer in doing that.
