Weird Italy ansa-700x366-precomposed 'Futura' chosen as Milano-Cortina Winter Olympics logo What happened in Italy today

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 30 – An emblem named ‘Futura’ was
presented on Tuesday as the logo for the Milano-Cortina 2026
Winter Olympics.
    The symbol is made up of the numbers 2 and 6, combined and
designed in a distinctive way and coloured to look like ice.
    It beat off competition from ‘Dado’, a dice with the numbers 2
and 6 in red and green, winning 75% of the 850,000 votes cast in
an online ballot.
    It is the first time that an Olympic logo has been picked in
this way.
    “The logo won’t be just something to support, it will also be
something to wear,” said Giovanni Malagò, the head of Italian
Olympic Committee CONI.
    “It could also be the forerunner of graphic formats in the
future”.
    Sports Undersecretary Valentina Vezzali, a six-times Olympic
fencing gold medallist, said “the logo is beautiful and it will
be able to convey many emotions to us”.
    ‘Futura’ changes colour to red, green and blue for the logo for
the Milano-Cortina 2026 Winter Paralympics. (ANSA).
