The return of the Winter Olympics to Cortina, the Queen of the Dolomites, after the almost heroic days of 1956, is not just a desire of the active and hard-working population that lives in this fortunate corner of Italy, but an intimate aspiration of every athlete, every sports manager, every sports enthusiast who believes in the purity of the Olympic Games and recognises their true nature, warm atmosphere, only if they take place in a natural environment that is still intact, like that of an Alpine village, where everything is just a few steps away from the doorstep, where the air you breathe is pure, where you do not know the neurosis, the megalomania and the uncomfortableness of the big city metropolises. Organising an Olympics in Cortina means returning to simplicity, functionality and spirit, the costs of which are ultimately borne by the world community. Cortina d'Ampezzo has all the necessary equipment for the Winter Olympics and its sports facilities are located within a radius of 5 kilometres. Its average altitude of 1,200 metres, its predominantly dry climate, the calmness of the winds in its basin protected to the north by the Dolomites, the long hours of sunshine even in winter, the safety of snowfall, and its complete tourist and accommodation facilities all guarantee the success of an Olympic Games, even from the technical point of view of sporting results. Before proposing Cortina d'Ampezzo's candidature again, the municipal administration carefully evaluated all these aspects and unanimously decided to give its opinion, which immediately turned from favourable to enthusiastic. We are certain, therefore, that when the Olympic Games return to our town, everyone will feel at home and, what is most important, will find the best part of themselves.
