The cultural legacy of the Torino Olympic Games 2006

This thesis investigates the meaning of the CULTURAL LEGACY expression.
A definition will be provided since this specific legacy has not not been properly defined yet in the literature, and the weight of its management is deeply analyzed by the study of the modern Olympic Games, more specifically of the Winter Edition of Torino 2006.
Starting from a general investigation of the significance of the "legacy" word inside of the Mega events category, this text will then focalize its attention on the Cultural legacy sphera by defining all the variables that are making up this new term.
The key features that should be sustained for leave meaningful cultural impacts are here identified as tangible proof of the importance that this legacy holds.
Concluding with several interviews taken to some olympic specialists, this thesis shows the importance that the Cultural Legacy has in accelerating the quality of life, the local urbanization, and in providing cultural and social benefits for the long term to the host city.

11 CHAPTER 1: CULTURAL LEGACY DEFINITION Introduction This paper explores the cultural impacts that are affecting the city of Torino after the staging of the Olympic Games in 2006. Cultural impacts are analyzed and defined in order to provide a clear framework for future mega sports events. In fact Olympic games are the oldest type of "world events", and their analysis can be very helpful for the study of other events as well: like UNESCO cultural capitals, Expo's, G8 meetings. J. MacAloon ( 2002) stated that culture is not just one aspect of the Olympic legacy, it is the ultimate source of all other forms 1 . When the Olympic games leave behind public improvements, sports installations, facilities, infrastructures, foundation funds, or permanent art, they do so because the Games are first and foremost accumulated cultural capital. If the culture is the factor that groups all the other forms of legacies, I want to seek to determine if it is possible to talk about a new kind of legacy, called "cultural", by analyzing and lumping together some of the categories that usually are utilized by the authors. Mega events and global sports culture provides cultural resources for reflecting upon identity and for the construction of a meaningful social life 2 So far this study has investigated the meaning of the expression "Cultural Legacy": a definition will be provided since is impossible to find a specific meaning in the literature, and the weight of its management as achievement factor is deeply . The sets of values promoted, the human capital involved, studies for improvements, and better quality of lives are the best opportunities to harmonize the world. Therefore a legacy called "cultural" has to enter in the common terminology used by Olympic managers. No matter if it is intangible, not measurable in concrete terms; the effects that such legacy has over the worldwide population are enormous. 1 J. J.
