Foro Italico The father of Foro Italico - at the origin called Foro Mussolini - is Renato Ricci.

While it was being designed, three locations were rejected: of the University, Casal Palocco and the area of Villaggio Olimpico. The area that was finally chosen was along the Tevere River and it needed to be drained before becoming the location for the project.

Ricci was forbidden to build in the surrounding area of Monte Mario, to provide a green environment for the Foro and for the city.

The architects Costantini and Pintonello (24 years old at that time) were called for the design and the construction of the thermal baths, the swimming pools (a pensile one) and the obelisk. The project of Piazzale dell'Impero has been designed by the architect Moretti; the Fontana della Sfera by Pediconi and Paniconi.
