The Winter Olympics of 2026 will take place in Milan and Cortina: the IOC has decided, voting for the Italian candidacy in Lausanne and preferring it to that of Stockholm-Aare. Italy will return to organize an edition of the Olympics, 20 years after the Turin 2006 Winter Games. The most well-known redevelopment project linked to the 2026 Olympic Games is the construction of PalaItalia in the Santa Giulia district, on the south-east outskirts of the city. The 15 thousand seat Arena is a private structure that is part of a larger redevelopment project, called Montecity-Rogoredo. Design and construction are entrusted to Risanamento, which, just a week after the expected vote by the IOC, announced that it had signed a pact with the Australian company Lendlease and Ogv Europe Limited for the construction of the Palazzetto. The processing phases involve the approval of the integrated intervention plan by the municipal council and that of the reclamation project, therefore in 2020 the redevelopment of the area will be started. The start of works is scheduled for January 2021 and completion in December 2023. It will cost 70 million euros. The mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala, had made it clear in advance that the construction of the plant was planned "regardless of the outcome of the assignment to Milan-Cortina of the Olympics".
The Olympic Village
The construction of the Olympic Village, which is part of the redevelopment project for the Porta Romana Railway Station, will also have a major impact on the appearance of the southern suburbs. It will host the athletes competing in Milan on an area of 19 hectares. There are seven railways in total that will change face in the city, according to the Urban Development Plan for 2030. Responsible for the design and construction process is Fs Sistemi Urbani, a company 100% controlled by Ferrovie dello Stato. The Olympic Village, with 1260 beds with 70 single rooms and 630 double rooms, should be completed eight months before the opening of the Games. The start of construction sites is scheduled for June 2022. The future of the structure after the Olympics has also been decided: it will be transformed into a residential campus for students, obviating the historic shortage of housing for university students.
The rebirth of the Palasharp (in a state of neglect for eight years) is another long-awaited redevelopment involving Lampugnano. It will become the Milan Hockey Arena. Born in 1985 as Palatrussardi (later also Palavobis and Mazdapalace), the eight-thousand-seat facility has long hosted sporting events, especially basketball games, and hundreds of concerts, including the historic ones of Frank Sinatra and Nirvana. In recent years, part of the plant has served as a municipal shelter for the homeless, but now its future should be linked to sport again. The investment, of over seven million euros, will be almost entirely at private expense. The works are scheduled to start in December 2020 and the plant opens in October 2021.
Mediolanum Forum di Assago
Also the Mediolanum Forum of Assago by 2026 should be expanded to accommodate figure skating and the short track. The IOC technicians have examined the structure that will be set up. From the central runway, which is located 4.60 meters above the ground and the secondary level, on the ground floor. "Both are regulations - they had specified -. The difference is that the first also has 12 thousand seats, the other not ". Here the sports activity on ice is in the hands of Federica Pesenti's Ilcelab. The committee was "fairly certain" of the validity of the Mediolanum Forum to host the Olympic competitions. In his favor the recent Figure Skating World Championship, which took place in Assago.
Allianz Cloud (formerly Palalido)
At the Allianz Cloud (formerly Palalido), after the ribbon-cutting ceremony last June 14, the works will be completed in the first few months of 2020: various sports competitions could take place here. Once finished, the multifunctional and modular facility designed by the Teco + and Acr studios will host just over five thousand spectators, six locker rooms, two ticket offices, a hospitality area, four sky boxes, three bars, and as many elevators. Among the strengths of the new building, the design structure, the photovoltaic and insulation panels, the lighting with LED technology and the modularity of the heating system for a work that focuses on energy saving. The spaces have been designed for full accessibility not only for the spectator with disabilities, but also for the athlete with a disability and for other users of the sports facility.
The Meazza stadium
Despite the announced demolition of the stadium by Milan and Inter, in the Milan-Cortina dossier it is guaranteed that in 2026 the San Siro will host the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics. Mayor Sala confirmed: "After the Games, if we have a new stadium, we will decide the future of San Siro."
There are two medal plaza for the Olympics: in Milan the awards will take place in Piazza Duomo, in Cortina in the De Rigo sports field. The Milan-Valtellina cluster plans to host 2,756 athletes and technicians and to award 46 medals. On the governance of the event Sala excludes the joint-stock company as for Expo. Better a mission structure or a foundation, says Fontana, which reaffirms the difficulty of when there are too many heads to decide. For the Milanese medal plaza there are about 240 thousand dollars for the set-up.
Bormio, Sondrio and Livigno
The impact of the allocation of the 2026 Games in Milan-Cortina is also felt in Valtellina, where one of the Olympic clusters will be built between Bormio and Livigno. Three significant works could be carried out in the area: the recovery of the former hospital in Bormio, the construction of the Olympic Village in Livigno (almost 50 million dollars) and the completion of the Sondrio ring road. After the end of the event, the temporary component of the Livigno Village will be reused by the civil defense, while the permanent residential buildings, which can accommodate up to three hundred people, will constitute a training and physical training center for professional athletes.
