Given a triangle $ABC$, its FermatTorricelli point $T$ is the point such that the sums of distances $TA+TB+TC$ is a minimum. In this paper a special class of polygons (stars) is introduced and an analogue of the FermatTorricelli result is proved. The underlying idea is clearly inspired by the proof of the original result. Being an elementary Euclidean geometry paper, a figure would have been highly appreciated.
