The main principles that have inspired the vision of the Games have also driven the Milano Cortina 2026 venues' selection, based on our overarching commitment to deliver memorable Olympic and Paralympic Games by composing a responsible Games Concept through the careful selection of the best platforms available.
The selection of the venues has been carried out to ensure a long-lasting legacy even for grassroots sports. In each cluster, the traditional vocation of the venue cities has been captured by our vision and transformed into a point of reference for practicing grassroots sports.
Moreover, hosting the Games will be conducive to substantial improvements to the accessibility of the host and venue cities and the hosting regions.
Therefore, we have chosen only existing venues that are already fully accessible and, where necessary, we will renovate them according to the most demanding accessibility standards for people with mobility and visual impairments.
