“It is something that we have earned on the field and I am convinced that the whole team has strongly desired it. I believe that playing in the Final Six will be a source of our playing experience crucial to the history of this team,” said Mencarelli.

Italy will challenge Japan, China, Brazil, the United States and Serbia in Final Six, all teams that are part of the world elite.
