Cortina previously hosted the Winter Olympics in 1956, while Turin staged the 2006 edition of the Games.
There were only two candidates left after four other bidders - the Swiss city of Sion, Japan's Sapporo, Graz in Austria and the Canadian city Calgary, which hosted in 1988 - had earlier dropped out of the race with concerns over the event's size and cost.
The results showed Milan-Cortina had received 47 out of the 82 votes cast.
Sweden has never hosted a Winter Games before and the wait goes on after its Stockholm-Are bid - based around the capital and its largest ski resort, but also including Latvian city Sigulda - received 34 votes. There was one abstention/blank vote.
