The Swimming Stadium underwent a complete renovation by the sports club that was awarded the management.

The roof was renewed, made with a system of tubular metal elements; the coating of the large pool was redone, with the raising of the sides and the creation of a new water overflow system.The changing rooms were rationalised and the entire plant system was revised. Most of the work on the facilities was necessary to bring them into line with current regulations, but it also guarantees greater efficiency in terms of reduced energy consumption and improved functionality and management
