The mayor of Rome wants the Stadio Olimpico to be opened for fans to watch Italy in the 2021 European Championships final on the big screens.

Virginia Raggi posted a message on Twitter to the Italian Olympic committee the day after Italy beat Spain in a penalty shootout to reach Sunday’s final at the Wembley Stadium in London.


She suggested that the final should be projected on the screens at the stadium “with a reduced capacity to respect anti-COVID measures.”

The stadium had earlier hosted Italy’s three group matches and the quarterfinal encounter between England and Ukraine at Euro 2020.

Italy will face the winner of the second semifinal, taking place between England and Denmark on Wednesday at the Wembley, for the continental title.
