Bolognia600The Stadio Renato dall'Ara, home to Bologna FC, is one of the most emblematic grounds in Italy. Built under the fascist regime, it was inaugurated by Mussolini in 1926 – he was the target of a failed assassination attempt during the event. Its tower, inserted into one of the main stands, symbolises the competition and athletes' resistance, and it makes of the Dall'Ara a unique venue. The 38,200-capacity stadium hosted games in both 1934 and 1990 World Cup finals.
