U.C. Sampdoria
Unione Calcio Sampdoria, commonly known as Sampdoria [sampˈdɔrija], is an Italian association football club based in Genoa. Sampdoria currently competes in Serie A.

Both the team name and jersey reflect this, the first being a combination of the former names, the second incorporating the former teams' colours (blue-white and red-black) in a single design. The team's colours are blue with white, red and black hoops, hence the nickname blucerchiati ("blue-circled"). Sampdoria play at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, capacity 36,536,[1] which it shares with Genoa's other club, Genoa Cricket and Football Club. The derby between the two teams is commonly known as the Derby della Lanterna. Sampdoria have won the Scudetto once in their history, in 1991

Business Park
A business park or office park is an area of land in which many office buildings are grouped together. All of the work that goes on is commercial, not large-scale industrial nor residential.[citation needed] The first office park opened in Mountain Brook, Alabama, in the early 1950s to avoid racial tension in city centers.[1] These are popular in many suburban locations, where development is cheaper because of the lower land costs and the lower building costs for building wider, not necessarily higher. Some businesses prefer the larger floorplates as more efficient, reducing time lost moving between floors
