The Eugenio Monti track is a well-known Bobsleigh and skeleton track, situated in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. The track has been named after Eugenio Monti (1928-2003), who was an Italian Bobsledder. The town of Cortina d'Ampezzo introduced Bobsleigh events here in 1905. Special water piping was constructed so as to allow the freezing of track. The track was employed for the International event first times in 1928 at the International University Winter Games. The track underwent renovation in 1936 to meet the standards of the competitive tracks such as the St.Moritz, Switzerland and the Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. The Eugenio Monti track underwent renovations for the second time after the World War II in 1948. All the turns were rebuilt, and the track was strengthened. The Eugenio Monti track previously had 16 curves but was shortened after the 1981 FIBT World Championships. At present, it has 13 curves.
