The design concept of the Turin 2006 torch is innovative. It is a modern reinterpretation of the traditional torch made of wood. The flame envelopes the body of the torch, instead of coming out of a hole on top, as has been the case in the past.
The fruit of advanced technology, it was produced to meet certain very precise criteria. It can be lit and remain alight in poor weather conditions such as rain, snow and wind. The flame of each torch burns for 15 minutes and must not be higher than 10 centimetres.
