Side Events

Contest “A dish for Short Track”

The hospitality training institute of Bormio organizes a contest among its students called “a dish for Short Track”. Boys and girls will engage in a cooking competition and present a recipe with local ingredients, such as bresaola (dry beef), casera (local cheese) and buckwheat.
In the jury there will be the award-winning chef Claudio Prandi.

Painting event: “Dressing up Kuerc’s square”

The chinese artist Xiju Guo will be in Bormio during the World Junior Short Track. For the occasion, Xiju Guo will paint the historic building used for the Administration of Justice in the Middle Ages (kuerc’s square) with the piece with which he won the painting contest “Roberto Togni” in 2018: an interpretation of justice inspired from the works of Ignazio Bardea, a historian from Bormio.

The inauguration is on Saturday, February 1st at 6.30 p.m.

Live Music

Two very well known local music bands, both nationally and internationally, will participate at the opening cerimony and delight us with their tunes. They are Gruppo Vocale Li Osc’  and Fanfara dei Bersaglieri from Morbegno and they will play at Bormio Ice Rink.

TSN Radio Party

From the ice arena to the dance arena! To release the tensions accumulated during the races, TSN Radio organizes a party at Pentagono on Sunday night! You don’t want to miss it!
