- Published: 28 November 2018
Milan Cortina 2026 is racing toward the five-ringed dream. The Italian project for hosting the XXV edition of the Winter Olympics and Paralympics was presented today for the first time during the XXIII General Assembly of ANOC in Tokyo. The proposals connected to the candidacy were illustrated by the president of CONI, Giovanni Malagò, the Mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala, The President of the Veneto Region, Luca Zaia, and Olympic short track athlete, Arianna Fontana.
During the presentation, the project logo was also unveiled. A Milan Cathedral designed with the façade that transforms into a mountain, reminiscent of the Alps and the Dolomites, with green, white and red peaks in honour of Italy. And from the highest point of the central peak, the descent of a slalom course begins with a three-coloured effect. The intent of the logo is to match the symbol par excellence of Milan with the mountains of Cortina and Valtellina, promoting the colours of the Italian flag in each circumstance, the icon of a candidacy shared by three territories but with an eye for the entire nation.
