The spirit of Christmas, and the values of the Olympics and Paralympics, will illuminate the Milano Cortina 2026 Albero dei Giochi (Olympic Games Tree) in Piazza del Duomo.
A beautifully decorated Nordmann fir, from the nearby Province of Varese, will greet all Milanese and tourists alike to wish them a happy festive season.
A hall of fame at the base of the Olympic Games tree, sponsored by Esselunga, will pay homage to the 221 Italian medallists in the history of the Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
The majestic 28-metre-high fir will be adorned with circa 300 silver & red Christmas spheres intertwined with decorative gold, silver and bronze medals in homage to the extraordinary feats of the Italian champions.
The tree in Piazza Duomo will be illuminated by the amber-coloured hues of approx. 100,000 microLEDs which will culminate at the top with a dazzling snowflake. During the Christmas period, the Piazza del Duomo tree dedicated to the Games will be enhanced with two additional installations depicting the Olympic Circles and the Paralympic Agitos.
The Milano Cortina 2026 Games tree-lighting ceremony will be held on Wednesday 6th December, starting from 17:00, in Piazza del Duomo.
Magic is in the air…
