The candidate cities are Cortina d'Ampezzo, Milan, and Turin. CONI will decide between them at its next national council meeting, according to the ANSA news agency.



The decision could be taken on August 1 or September 10, CONI said on Tuesday.
CONI President Giovanni Malago was quoted by ANSA as saying that the best option was a joint candidature comprising Cortina, Milan and Turin.
