The framework of the old Stadio Sant’Elia still exists, at the southwestern edge of Cagliari, right next to the Sardegna Arena. There had to be a new stadium already, but completely in line with good old South-Italian habits things go a little bit slower here: even the demolition of the old Sant'Elia isn't completely yet. You can still recognize the stadium, used for the 1990 World Cup, from its robust shapes. Further, there's little going on in the direct surroundings of the stadium. It feels a bit like a construction site.
