La Nuvola in Rome has the capacity for more than 3,000 vaccinations a day.
The Nuvola Convention Center in Rome’s EUR district has been transformed into Italy’s largest covid-19 vaccination center.
The vaccine hub at the futuristic building, designed by the ‘archistar’ Massimiliano Fuksas, will have the capacity to administer more than 3,000 vaccines a day.
The new vaccination center was inaugurated by the Lazio governor Nicola Zingaretti on 24 February.
Describing it as “an important day,” regional health councilor Alessio D’Amato said: “We will start with the teachers who have already booked in large numbers.”
La Nuvola becomes the latest landmark site in Rome to take on the new vaccine center role after the Auditorium Parco della Musica and Fiumicino airport.
The giant conference center, whose name translates as “cloud,” opened in 2016 after extensive delays and cost over-runs.
