For some time to come Torino proposes itself as the ideal hub for sport events. The city has been chosen for a number of world class happenings taking advantage of the recent structures that were used on the occasion of the XX Winter Olympic Games event.
The LXXX World Fencing event opening ceremony took place on 30 Sep 06 with a parade through the downtown city streets and culminating in San Carlo square. Here, a stage was set up for live music and another stage was arranged all around the "Bronze Horse" statue in the middle of the elegant square. The colorful ceremony was concluded with the landing of parachuters and an aerial performance with artists suspended from a crane.
