The relationship between mega-events and cities is changing due to growing criticism and delegitimization regarding the increase of investments towards new venues and infrastructures. This contribution argues that it is useful to learn jointly from different types of both sporting and cultural mega-events. For instance, the European Capital of Culture promotes multiple approaches to reusing existing venues and infrastructures, integrating events into the urban fabric, with a more sustainable size and budget compared to Olympics or Expo. The article considers international case studies to discuss the construction of public narratives, governance and spatial visions, and cultural heritage. It critically reflects on the potential of the Milano-Cortina 2026 Olympics to respond to these aspects.
Keywords: mega-events; urban planning; urban policy
