Giovanni Greppi was entrusted with the project to build the stadium at the behest of Benito Mussolini. Dedicated to the rowing champion Giuseppe Sinigaglia, who fell in the First World War, the Giuseppe Sinigaglia stadium is one of the first examples of rationalist architecture in Italy.
The capacity of the stadium is 13.602 spectators, which reached 18,000 during the Serie A period of the Como team. From the distinct sector curves it is possible to admire Lake Como directly. The covered grandstand was demolished to be rebuilt in 1990. The same fate happened after the separate sector in the 90s and the house curve with an innocent pipe structure. In 2003-2004 the guest curve was rebuilt, passing from the larger concrete structure.

The works began in 1926 on the land donated by the Podestà Baragiola and designed by the architect Giovanni Greppi of Milan. The stadium was equipped with a 500 meter cycle track and a 450 meter track, the football field of about 7200 square meters could accommodate 6000 people.
