The programme of the Festival includes events and shows with Alessandro Benetton and Sofia Goggia who will present the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Finals and the Cortina 2021 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships speaking about sport, enthusiasm and glamour

Cortina d’Ampezzo (BL), 9th October 2019 – The Festival of Sport in Trento, organised by the Italian sport newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport and Trentino Marketing, will be an opportunity to present the partnership between the most important Italian publishing group and Fondazione Cortina 2021 to the general public and the media. It will be an ongoing, high-level collaboration in a series of events that will lead to the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Finals next March and the Cortina 2021 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.

Sport, which in Cortina d’Ampezzo is indissolubly linked to glamour, passion and the warmth and enthusiasm of the crowd, finds in the RCS multimedia publishing group the perfect partner to share the hard work Fondazione Cortina 2021 is doing in order to make the next international competitions into events of great resonance as for sport and custom for the people who will come to Cortina or watch the races at home.

Here is the schedule of the first events in which Cortina 2021 will be present:

Friday 11th October

At 10.30 am in the Teatro Sociale in Trento, there will be the talk Milano – Cortina, le nostre Olimpiadi (Milan – Cortina 2026, our Olympics), with Alessandro Benetton, President of Fondazione Cortina 2021.

That same day, in the afternoon, Sofia Goggia, Olympic champion and Ambassador of the 2021 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, will walk around Trento while answering questions she will receive through the Ask function of the app just launched by Fondazione Cortina 2021 and downloadable for everyone.
