Covered Grandstand for "Swearing-in Ceremony of the Bergamo Guardia di Finanza", Italy
Studio Rota Nodari has extensive experience in civil and industrial project development. For many years, it has designed temporary and permanent steel and aluminum structures such as tensile structures, scaffolding, platforms, and prefabricated roofs for various events throughout Italy and abroad.

Structural DesignThe multi-directional pipe structure is ideal for temporary events due to its easy installation and flexibility. For this project, the frame system was used to support the roof, built behind the seating area and for absorbing the concrete ballast.
The roof structure included aluminum beams, upper tension members, and a waterproof membrane. The grandstand, typically decorated for the law enforcement agency, was to be utilized by the agency's dignitaries, families, and friends attending the "swearing-in of the Guardia di Finanza of Bergamo officer cadets". This event is held annually in early May at the central Piazza Vittorio Veneto in the city of Bergamo.
Thanks to the Italian company New Cover S.a.s's organization, experience, and professionalism, it was possible to assemble the grandstand in three short days and dismantle it within 24 hours after the event's closing for quicker access to the existing public space.

In the case of open cross-sections, the torsional load is removed mainly via secondary torsion, since the St. Venant torsional stiffness is low compared to the warping stiffness.
- I need to define different types of lateral intermediate restrains for a single element in RF-/STEEL EC3. Is this possible?
- Can I design members with Class 4 sections according to CSA S16 in the Steel Design add-on?
- How can I connect surfaces to other surfaces or members in a hinged/semi-rigid way? What are Line Hinges and Line Releases?
