The Kihinkan: the Casa Italia for the Games
- Published: 16 July 2019
The Kihinkan – Takanawa Manor House”: this is the Casa Italia headquarters at the next 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The CONI Council made the decision today at the end of a long selection process of over 60 locations carried out during the last two years. The structure is characterized by a Liberty-style architecture from the start of the last century and is located in the Minato district about 10 kilometres form the Olympic Village and the Main Press Center.
Financed totally by the CONI partners of Team Italia, Casa Italia, as occurred already in Rio 2016 and PyeongChang 2018, is a continuously evolving process that is nurtured by passion and the stories of the countries in which the Games are held, creating an unbreakable bond between Italian culture and the local one.
For Tokyo 2020, the concept is expressed by a circular, innovative and sustainable project, created by Italy for Japan, to celebrate the sports victories of the Italia Team, giving them to the world through a 17-day performance, using the excellences of our country.
