Turin 2006: New Look For Torino2006.org
The Organising Committee for the XX Olympic Winter Games – Turin 2006 (TOROC) has launched a new look for its official website www.torino2006.org. Incorporating the Turin 2006 Look of the Games into the site, the new web design will allow TOROC to promote their “Piazza” theme over the next year via the world wide web.
The concept of the Piazza is the key theme behind TOROC’s look for the 2006 Winter Olympic Games. Looking to express the ideals of friendship, fair play, participation and respect, while still retaining a modern outlook and respecting the Italian spirit, the Piazza was the ideal choice for TOROC. The Piazza is a scene of gathering and of passion, where culture, style, technology, taste, sport and emotion are united in one place. The TOROC Look of the Games therefore interprets the modern arcades of Turin, which are sloping and seem to lean towards the mountains. As of today, the official Turin 2006 website will take on the Look of the Games and the Piazza will go global.
The Look of the Games is the common design theme that covers all the elements of a Games. Indeed, in Italy, the city of Turin, the mountain venues, the official publications, the uniforms, and of course the website of the Games are all starting to take on this new Olympic look. The look communicates the Olympic values and the values of the host city, while ensuring that the event has a coordinated image over all the venues and publications.
The Olympic Winter Games will be held in Turin from 10 to 26 February 2006. The Winter Games comprise seven different sports and 15 different disciplines, which will be contested in eight different competition venues. Around 2,500 athletes, 650 judges and umpires and 1.5 million spectators are expected to participate in this 20th edition of the Winter Games.
