This week at the Olympic Museum…(06-12.02.2006)
Finding the Roots of Sport. Origins - Rites - Identities exhibition
Until 19 March 2206
Sport is a witness to the practices of our ancestors. And today, the Olympic Games have become their universal language. With its new exhibition, the Olympic Museum seeks to find the roots of sport through the ages, and throughout the world. Upon request, young visitors (from 12 years old) can benefit from tours guided by the Museum’s coordinators, who will have undertaken a rigorous training programme with students from the University of Neuchâtel’s Ethnological Institute, as part of an exchange: ethnology for some, and sporting values for others. This fusion gave birth to a unique tour programme, of which our young visitors will be the privileged beneficiaries. An educational kit developed in collaboration with the Education and Development Foundation will enable teachers to further explore the themes addressed in the exhibition and, especially, to work on traditional sporting values and compare them with Olympic sports.
Torino 2006 Olympic Winter Games and more exhibition
Until 16 April 2006
The exhibition awakes the spirit of the Games in Turin, across three thematic sections that illustrate the most curious and fascinating aspects. Red - passion, yellow - Piedmont and blue - technology and environment. A beautiful journey through the colours of Torino 2006.
