The Politecnico di Torino has chosen the Pala Alpitour as the reference facility to create a simulation beta test for the re-opening of concerts and big public and private events within a larger document that deals with the theme of re-starting of exhibitions, cultural, social, sporting and entertainment events following the lock-down for the Covid-19 emergency.
The work team has defined standards that take into consideration some key parameters including the type of event, the expected number of spectators, the support staff, the incoming and outgoing crowd movements, the characteristics of the venue where the event takes place, air-filtering processes in relation to the number of people, sanitization, just to name a few.
