Torino Oval Lingotto is an indoor arena in Turin, Italy. It was built for use at the 2006 Winter Olympics, during which it hosted speed skating events.[2] It has a capacity of 8,500 spectators and was designed by Populous, Studio Zoppini Associati of Milan and Buro Happold.

After Olympic competition at the venue concluded on February 25, 2006, plans for the structure now include use for fairs and exhibitions in connection with the Lingotto Fiere exhibition centre. It will also be able to accommodate 2,000 spectators for ice skating events.

The 2006 World Fencing Championships took place in the Oval Lingotto from September 29 to October 7.

The Oval hosted the 2009 European Indoor Championships in Athletics, for which it had a seating capacity for 6.600 spectators.[3]
