This games is gonna be wild...in distances traveled and hopefully sporting archievements.

Of course, atmosphere must be perfect here; Milano Cortina 2026 will be the New Norm first real test.

Four years to see if it will hold up or the Italians will fumble it for the IOC dismay.

Is the Ceremonies venue redevelopment going to be complete before and after the 2026 games?

After.   The Opening Ceremony will occur in the existing Guiseppe Meazza stadium also known as the San Siro.  It will then be demolished.

"Cathedral" design selected to replace San Siro in 2026 Olympic host Milan - 22/12/2021 - Inside the Games

Originally, it was planned to have the teams move before the games and have the Opening Ceremony as sort of a good-bye show for San Siro. But (as we're in Italy, after all...) things are moving slowly and opposition by locals to dismantle the historic stadium is rising. I sincerely doubt they will get the new stadium ready by February 2026.

Edwin Moses, Olympian, athletic icon and Chair of the OSA Anti-Doping Agency calls for:

“the International Olympic Committee (IOC) should announce “immediately” that the two countries must sit out Paris 2024 and Milano-Cortina 2026 in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine as well as ongoing doping scandals.”
