This week at the Olympic Museum…(03-09.04.2006)
Torino 2006 Olympic Winter Games and more exhibition
Until 16 April 2006
Fifty years after Cortina 1956, Italy is once again hosting the Olympic Winter Games and dressing them up with a touch of charm and style, and love of sport and the environment. Turin and Piedmont, the hosting region, add not only concreteness, commitment and organisational skills, but above all a heritage of culture, history, tradition and natural beauty all waiting to be discovered. For this reason, Torino 2006 is something more than the Olympic Winter Games… The exhibition evokes the spirit of the Turin Games through three thematic sections that illustrate the most curious and fascinating aspects. Red for passion, yellow for Piedmont and blue for technology and the environment. An inspiring journey through the colours of Torino 2006.
