835 sport events, both national and international, 16 paralympic games, 248 cultural events, 15,500 free motor activities. More than 50,000 children are involved in the projects, and there are over 55,000 awards. 20 million ratings in the RAI programs. These are the figures registered in a year of sport in Turin.
It was registered by OMERO – Centro interdipartimentale dell’Università di Torino (Olympics and Mega Events Research Observatory), during a research for Assessorato allo sport of Turin City Hall. Such figures were presented at Cavallerizza Reale during the meeting named “La città e lo sport. Torino 2015 e oltre – Mappe, pratiche, immagini, ricadute economiche, pubblico (City and sport. Turin 2015 and over – Maps, pictures, economic crisis, public)”.
The research analyzes relations between sport, spaces and land. It also makes a map related to sport (and its plants), analyzing the relations between sport, land and the relation between sport and the image of the city, going through the economic crisis that affected Turin in 2015, together with the results of surveys.
“The research was focused on the profits gained by the city, and on how important they have been after Turin 2015. What happened is the so-called leverage effect: 600,000 € for the City Hall. 3.5 million € were spent on lands and territory.” Explained Professor Piervincenzo Bondonio, from Culture, Politics and Society Department at Università di Torino.
