In Italy, true tennis lovers know that there is no more prestigious event than the Internazionali BNL d’Italia, a tournament that has attracted fans of this sport for decades in the evocative setting of the capital.

Brief History of the Internazionali di Tennis of Italy

It all began way back in 1930 at the Milan Tennis Club, but already in 1935 the tournament moved to Rome, in the majestic Foro Italico, where it is still based today. With few exceptions, the competition has always seen Rome as its home, except on three occasions during the 1980s when the women’s competitions were held elsewhere. A dark period occurred during the war, from 1936 to 1949, when the tournament never saw the light of day. Today, the Internazionali BNL d’Italia represent the pinnacle of attention in the Italian tennis scene, second only to the Roland Garros on clay courts. Since 2003, the tournament has taken on the official name of Internazionali BNL d’Italia, thanks to high-profile sponsorships.

The Theater of Emotion: The Foro Italico

The Foro Italico, inaugurated in 1932 and completed after the Second World War, is the perfect setting for this epic event. With its 14 clay courts and one synthetic grass, the Foro Italico is an imposing architectural complex, surrounded by the green hills of Monte Mario. With facilities such as the Stadio dei Marmi and the Stadio dei Cipressi, it is an ode to the greatness and history of sport. Inside, the Central Court with its 10,500 seats, the Grand Stand Arena with 5,000 seats and the Nicola Pietrangeli Stadium with 3,720 seats are ready to welcome spectators in an unforgettable experience.
