#3139 - Torino 2006 Winter Olympics Torch Estimate: $1,000+

Sought-after 'ski tip' torch from the Torino Games

Official 2006 Torino Winter Olympics torch, constructed of blue techno-polymer-coated aluminum, measuring 31.25″ in length and 4.5″ at its widest point. Designed by Pininfarina, the shape of the torch was designed to appear like a ski tip, while also representing the monument and symbol of Turin, the Mole Antonelliana. Additionally, the design was intended to replicate the traditional wooden torch, giving the impression that the metal itself catches fire and burns. The middle portion of the torch bears an inscription of the Torino Games emblem with Olympic rings. Accompanied by a custom-made acrylic stand, with a repaired crack to one corner. Starting on December 8, 2005, the Olympic torch relay lasted 75 days and traversed over 11,300 km. In all, a total of 10,001 torchbearers carried the flame until it entered the Olympic Stadium on February 10, 2006. This sleek and dynamic Olympic torch was awarded the Lorenzo il Magnifico award, the highest prize from the Florence Biennale of Contemporary Art.
