Palavela, formerly known as Palazzo delle Mostre and Palazzo a Vela is an arena in Turin, Italy, on the bank of the River Po. It was designed by engineer Franco Levi and architects Annibale and Giorgio Rigotti. The arena is 130 metres in diameter. Originally built for the Italia '61 Expo, Palavela was renovated for the figure skating and short track speed skating events at the 2006 Winter Olympics. It also hosted some events of the XXIII Winter Universiade in 2007. In 2008 the Palavela hosted the 24th European Rhythmic Gymnastics. It hosted the 2010 World Figure Skating Championships in March 2010.
As part of the renovation, a new seating system was installed at the arena. The cost of the renovation was 55,000,000 euros.
It has a seating capacity for a maximum 12,000 people, and 9,200 when configured for basketball games. The arena hosted the 2008 ULEB Cup Final Eight and also the same event under the competition's new name of the Eurocup in the 2008-09 season.

Finalmente questo anno hanno riaperto la struttura al pubblico, anche se solo per poco tempo..pista stupenda, personale educato e gentile, bar fornitissimo. Sarebbe bello poter sfruttare la struttura.... more »Finally this year they reopened the property to the public, even if only for a short time. Gorgeous track, polite and kind staff, very helpful bar. It would be nice to be able to take advantage of the structure...
地下鉄の駅からは10分ほど歩きます。別にサインが出ているわけではありません。 近くにバス停はありますが、イベントが終わって大勢の人が一度に出てきたら、バスに乗りきれないと思います。 他の方も書かれているように、背もたれのないシートもあり、私の席にもありませんでした。ただ、前の人がある程度背が高くても、視界が遮られることはなかったようです。 more »It takes about ten minutes to walk from the subway station. It's not that there's a separate sign. There is a bus stop nearby, but I don't think I'll be able to catch the bus if the event is over and a lot of people come out at once. As others have written, there was a seat without a backrest, and it was not in my seat. However, even if the person in front of me was tall to some extent, my vision was not obstructed.
Very functional and multipurpose place, useful for studying and watching basketball.
