Serie A side AS Roma have been given the go-ahead to build their own stadium.
AS Roma, who currently share the Stadio Olimpico with arch-rivals Lazio, have been pushing to get their own home for years.
The club's American president James Pallotta first launched the project in 2014 and numerous obstacles had to be overcome before the local authorities finally approved the plans and opened the way for building to begin.
The futuristic 55-thousand seater stadium will be built in the Tor di Valle district in the south of the Italian capital.
Roma hope to occupy the stadium in time for the 2020/21 season.
