THE TURIN 2006 OLYMPIC MUSEUM

In 2006, on the occasion of the XX Winter Olympic Games and the IX Winter Paralympic Games, Turin and its valleys experienced a moment of great appreciation and were at the centre of international attention. The Museomontagna conserves the memory of the sports events and their protagonists that so strongly marked Turin and its surrounding mountains and valleys. The memories of those days are today part of the permanent display in the sector of the Olympic Museum which is divided into two parts. On the first floor, an area dedicated to collections presents the project development of the Olympic Torch designed by Pininfarina, clothing and equipment for various athletes, including the gold medals Enrico Fabris and Armin Zoeggeler.​

The Olympic Courtyard, set up outdoors and open to the public, includes the urban furnishings Look of the City, the great red-coloured rods and vases and anemometer that embellished the city during the Olympics, as well as the torch of the Paralympics.
