Topic Sustainability

The topic of the 2026 Olympic Games is sustainability. This means that no new sports facilities should be built, but existing ones will be redesigned. This should be done to the extent that after the Olympics they can be used for top-class and popular sports without any modifications.

The Olympic Village

Where will the athletes live?

In the Porta Romana district of Milan, the former industrial site at Porta Romana train station is being completely redesigned and an Olympic village is being built. The railway line remains active and will be integrated into the project.

Part of the industrial district, the former gin distillery, was redesigned in 2015 by the Fondazione Prada and transformed into a project of art, fashion and architecture.

Porta Romana has its own metro station and the train station is therefore already well connected within Milan. The “Parco Romana” project provides for the integration of nature and the city, which contributes to a good quality of life. The entire district will be car-free and expanded for gentle mobility. The new residential buildings and work areas form a symbiosis with the landscape, which invites you to outdoor activities.

The emerging “Parco Romana” borders the university district with an already active nightlife. Paths and suspension bridges lead through the Parco Romana, creating a public landscape without architectural barriers. Other places in Milan can be easily reached in a short time. The new cycle paths fit perfectly into the existing cycle path network and create new safe paths away from the busy streets. You can get to the cathedral in 10 minutes by bike.

In the construction of the Parco Romana, attention is paid to reducing energy, water and emissions through integrated design and modularity, thus setting new standards for sustainability.

For use as an Olympic village, temporary functions such as restaurants, sports areas, commercial units and other public event rooms will be integrated into the complex.

The rooms in the sports village are simple and offer maximum flexibility. The historic warehouses for repairing locomotives are being renovated and integrated into the Olympic village.
After the Olympic Games, the Parco Romana will be converted into a residential area.

Cortina d’Ampezzo

You can experience perfect ski slopes in a breathtaking mountain panorama in Cortina d’Ampezzo.
Cortina d’Ampezzo is a world-famous winter sports resort in the Italian Dolomites. The ski stars are out and about here. The place is at an altitude of 1224 meters and is known as the “Queen of the Dolomites”. The Dolomites are part of the Unesco World Natural Heritage.
Cortina d’Ampezzo is located in Veneto in the province of Belluno. People have known about tourism for centuries. Every year winter sports enthusiasts arrive and transform the otherwise somewhat sleepy place into a winter sports paradise. This is where the top athletes of skiing come and go.

Dolomiti Superski

The Dolomiti Superski area includes 12 ski areas with 1200 km of ski slopes in the UNSECO World Natural Heritage. The entire network of slopes can be used with just one ski pass. The Dolomites offer fun on perfectly groomed slopes in winter and a blooming landscape for hiking and cycling in summer.
