THE WORDS OF JACOPO LARIZZA-

What prompted me to accept this proposal was first of all the welcome request from the club with the Presidents Bongiovanni and Zelatore, the care and attention of the General Manager Primavera and Mister Di Pinto whom I sincerely thank, who made me understand their great willingness to have me in this team. I really enjoyed it and I’m really flattered by it. The Gioiella Prisma club is a reality that cares a lot about the final result by developing individual individuals. Taranto is a serious club with an important history in the Italian volleyball world, last year it played an excellent championship as a newly promoted one, getting the salvation and touching the playoffs, missed by a whisker. I also spoke with Falaschi whom I know well and with whom I had played in the Lube. He told me about the excellent work that takes place in the gym with the coach and about the club that puts you in a position to face the season in the best possible way. In Taranto I have the opportunity to get involved on the field in Superlega, I expect to work hard and grow, I want to prove my worth and establish myself in the top Italian championship. It won’t be easy but I think I have some qualities that can emerge right in Taranto. I have never worked with Mister Di Pinto but I know that he is a great technician, very demanding but also very attentive to details and good from a technical point of view. I am happy to be able to work with him: I believe that I will be able to achieve the personal goals that I have set for myself and also those that we will agree on as a team. The team that is forming will be a respectable team with a very strong setter like Falaschi, who played an exceptional championship and deserved to be called up to the national team. I also know Stefani very well who played with us in the Lube youth teams and I also got to know Lucconi, from the Marche region like me and I believe that in general it will be a young team, together with some more experienced players who will help to grow the group. The team has all the credentials to reach the goal of salvation and confirm itself, always trying not to be satisfied but to spend every day in the gym working constantly; only in this way will we be able to achieve the quality and level of play that this championship requires ».

THE WORDS OF THE TECHNICIAN VINCENZO DI PINTO-

“The impression I had in the interview with Larizza is that he is a willing young man whose job does not scare him, I perceived the will of a humble boy who really wants to grow up and make a qualitative leap, and he has faith in this group of work. At the same time he has a good intuition and a decent blocking talent and good potential in attack, with a good level of physical and mental means and we also hope to make him make a big leap in quality ».
