San Siro

6 minutes

Even before kick-off, Milan’s San Siro stadium is an awe-inducing spectacle

Originally opened in 1926 and most recently renovated in 2016, the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan – better known as San Siro stadium – is one of the most legendary athletic venues in the world, home to the revered (and reviled) AC Milan and Inter Milan football clubs. This short documentary from the Italian director Yuri Ancarani traces the movements in and around the 80,000-seat stadium in the hours leading up to a match, as pre-game rituals and the slow trickle of fans reaches a fervent crescendo.

The deep roots of writing

Was writing invented for accounting and administration or did it evolve from religious movements, sorcery and dreams?
