The first Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games spread over an area of more than 22,000 square kilometers. The first edition with two cities in the name, Milano and Cortina, which will embrace two regions - Lombardy and Veneto - and two autonomous provinces - Trento and Bolzano. A show dedicated to great sport, where Ceremonies will have a special role, the opening and closing of an event that will go down in the history of sport.
