This picture was taken after the final whistle from Milan - Sampdoria in 2005. This is an addition to my previous post.
Please click on the photo to see the large version.
San Siro (official name: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza) is a football stadium located in the northwest of Milan. Originally build in 1925 with the biggest renovation in 1987. With a capacity of 80.000 it's one of Europe's biggest football stadiums.
It's home to the city's biggest clubs: AC Milan and Internationale Milan. AC Milan plays in red/ black shirts and called the Rossoneri. Inter in black/blue shirts and therefor the Nerazzurri. They both play in Italia's top league, Serie A.
These pictures were taken from the orange section on the second ring. The stadium has three rings but not on this east side. The short side across the field is the Milan side, curva sud. The side on you right, is the Inter side, curva nord where the tunnel is located. Mister Silvio Berlusconi (owner of AC Milan) is sitting on the long west side... the red section. (;
"The only goal in that game was scored by Kaka'! I don't know that much anymore about the game. I was so thrilled just being there. Sheva didn't play and Nesta went out injured. Costacurta went in and it was fun watching him, he hadn't played for months in the first team, he didn't know what to do, constantly looking around very nervously. We won; Billy won."
This picture is put together from 6 handheld images using standard Canon software.

While I probably understand less than most Europeans about football, I really enjoy this one. High viewpoint, extremely wide angle, good stitchwork and sheer monumentality of this stadion. Crop of the large version is better than in the smaller one.
