There are great expectations for the Audi Fis Ski World Cup event, taking place in Sestriere December 10th and 11th. As a matter of fact, the 2016 event marks an important date, as Sestriere celebrates 50 years World Cups and wishes to do it in grand style. Therefore not only races, but also great celebrations and a rich programme of side events. During the entire weekend there will be exhibitions, panel discussions, meetings, music and entertaining events, that will involve the whole resort to welcome athletes, fans and tourists in the warmest and most cheerful atmosphere.
To commemorate the 50 years World Cups also a special philatelic cancellation and a boxed set with four significant images for Sestriere, two obtained from historical posters, including the Woman in Green by Boccasile, an image of Francesca Marsaglia, the Vialattea testimonial, and a representative image of the skiing resort.
The philatelic cancellation on schedule December 10th reproduces the 50 Years Fis Ski World Cup logo with the wording Sestriere, while the one on schedule December 11th portrays the two towers of Sestriere with the wording Fis Ski World Cup.
The philatelic counter will be located by the Vialattea merchandising stand, set up in the race finish area inside the sponsors’ village, and will be open Saturday and Sunday from 9.00 to 15.00.
