The story behind the Neve & Gliz

Neve & Gliz are born from a snowball and an ice cube. Still, they are affectionate and warm, animated by an all-Italian passion. She has rounded forms, inspired by the snow and dressed in red; he wears blue, with squarer lines which are more typical of ice. And they both smile enthusiastically, conveying joy, a positive outlook and a sunny approach. But above all they are two natural elements without which there would be no Winter Games: snow and ice.


Neve: a synthetic name, simple, with a soft and elegant sound and very easy to memorise. Neve immediately recalls the bond of the mascot with one of the two natural elements that are fundamental for the practice of winter sports, and she is the ideal friend to play with under the sign of respect, loyalty and friendship, some of the highest expressions of the Olympic spirit.
Gliz: A name whose characteristics complement Neve. It expresses energy, passion, innovation entertainment. Gliz brings to mind the names of superheroes of comic strips, cartoons or childrens’ games. Gliz has a fresh, compact, sharp-edged sound: ideal characteristic to synthesise in a single word the squared shapes of the mascot.
