Milan hires Marco Vitelli

MILAN – Marco Vitelli is the new signing from Milan in place 3 for the 2022/23 championship. A two-year agreement was signed between the Abruzzo power plant and the company of president Lucio Fusaro.


Born in Atessa (CH) on April 4, 1996, Vitelli grew up in volleyball in AS Teate Volley Chieti before joining the Lube youth teams with which he made his debut in Serie A1 in the 2013/14 season. In September 2015 he participated in the Under 21 World Championship with the Italian national team, to land on loan at Exprivia Molfetta in 2016/17. In the following season he moved to the Bunge Ravenna with which he won the Challenge Cup. The following two seasons (2018/19, 2019/20) the central from Abruzzo disputes them with the Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia tuna shirt; the last two championships he wore the Kioene Padova shirt. In his career he has so far played 207 games in the top flight, collecting 851 points.


I am very excited, I can’t wait to start this adventure with Milan. It’s a team that is doing some good championships and I hope that next year we can repeat it with me and maybe even take a few steps forward to aim for a few more positions. You can see that behind the team there is a present and organized club, as well as a coach who does not need any introduction, there is a good project, year after year there is always a small step forward, and it is certainly personally motivating. . The ambitions of the company give me a lot of confidence, position and responsibility; it will certainly not be an easy task, but the team is complete in every department. I definitely consider myself a team man, I always get along with everyone; on an individual level I don’t know if I consider myself a central attack or a wall, what is certain is that I give my best in everything, certainly my best fundamental is the service, on which I work a lot“.

This is how Vitelli introduces himself, a determined and willing boy who releases energy when he talks about volleyball. Even the words of the Milan coach confirm the importance of the Milanese new signing and the great value he will have on the roster for next season:

We managed to get to Marco after about two years of trying; we had already looked for him when we had the problem the first year with Piano, his broken crusader, and Alletti’s heart problem. Unfortunately we weren’t able to bring him to our team at the time, but we did it after two years.- says coach Piazza – Vitelli is a guy we have wanted for a long time because I believe he perfectly marries the characteristics we are trying to assemble in our team, therefore aggressive characteristics both in service and in attack, as well as a great determination on the pitch. This means that Marco can be a very important element for us, also in view of the turnover that will be expected for the next championship if we want to get to the bottom trying to improve last year’s position.“.
