In 2005, the city of Ancona inaugurated its Palaindoor which hosts a state of the art hydraulic track provided by MONDO. The Palaindoor has 1600 seats, the central track and a six lane track aside. It is a versatile sporthall, thanks above all to the choice of building an hydraulic banked track that allows the use of the hall in a diversified manner: when the parterre of the track is at rest, it can host side activities (fencing competitions, exhibitions, competitions and exhibitions); in this way it is easier to find the economic resources necessary for the management of the sporthall. The building was designed by Roberto Buccione, a former Italian athlete, now he is a renowed sports facility designer. The plant underwent an extraordinary maintenance intervention in 2018: renewal of the 8 lanes of the central lanes and of the long, triple jump and the pole vault areas, which were worn out. Here are the words of the architect at the end of the recently completed maintenance works: "seeing this plant still alive is a great satisfaction as an architect but it is also a reason for civic pride because the municipality of Ancona has been able to keep alive and active one flagship of the Italian indoor athletics "
