Given that he did not send the best squad to the 2021 FIVB Volleyball Nations League in Rimini, the Italy Men head coach Belngini had quite enough time to assess which players he needs for the Olympic tournament in Tokyo and which do not fit his standards.

He crossed out four players from the group that included those players who have prepared for the event in the Japanese capital at home and those who took part in the VNL: Filippo Lanza, Gabriele Nelli, Fabio Ricci, and Fabio Balaso

This is the team chosen by Blengini to play in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic tournament:

Setters: Simone Giannelli, Riccardo Sbertoli

Opposite hitters: Luca Vettori, Ivan Zaytsev

Outisde hitters: Osmany Juantorena, Jiří Kovář, Daniele Lavia, Alessandro Michieletto

Middle blockers: Simone Anzani, Gianluca Galassi, Matteo Piano

Libero: Massimo Colaci
