«There are many reasons why I decided to come to Piacenza. The first is to be able to be coached by Lorenzo Bernardi who is a milestone in volleyball and it is also for him and his fame that so many kids start playing volleyball. And then I will have the opportunity to work with many champions and this will be very important for my growth. The fact of being able to steal some secrets from Scanferla, which I consider one of the strongest interpreters of the free role, is a great stimulus for me. My favorite free is Grebennikov but I know I don’t have the characteristics of him and so I try to take many small things from everyone, I try to find the characteristics that best suit me from each one. I think I have arrived in a team with all the credentials to take away some great satisfactions ».


«He is a very interesting young man and as soon as we had the opportunity to bring him to us we did it. We are sure that he will soon hear about him, he will have the opportunity to grow with us, we are happy that he is part of our family ».
