Notes NOTES: The three bronze columns called 'Points of View' that mark the entrance to the Olympic complex at Piazza d'Armi in Turin, were designed by the British-born sculptor Tony Cragg in 2005. The multi-purpose indoor sports/concert arena was designed by Arata Isozaki and opened in 2005. It served as one of the venues for the 2006 Winter Olympics, hosting the ice hockey events. The Art Deco Torre Maratona was built to signal the municipal stadium, built in the 1930s.
