The 2006 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XX Olympic Winter Games, were a winter multi-sport event which was celebrated in Turin, Italyfrom February 10, 2006, through February 26, 2006. This marked the second time Italy hosted the Olympic Winter Games, the first being the VII Olympic Winter Games in Cortina d´Ampezzo in 1956. Italy also hosted the Games of the XVII Olympiad in Rome in 1960. Turin was selected as the host city for the 2006 games in 1999. The official logo displayed the name ´´Torino´´, the Italian name of the city; the city is known as ´´Turin´´ in both English and the local traditional dialect,Piedmontese. The Olympic mascots of Torino 2006 were Neve (´´snow´´ in Italian), a female snowball, and Gliz, a male ice cube. The official motto of the XX Olympic Winter Games was ´´Passion lives here´´. Turin, with a metropolitan area of 1.7 million,was the largest city to have ever hosted a Winter Olympics. The title will fall to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, (2.5 million) when that city hosts the XXI Olympic Winter Games.
