When coach Marco Bonitta announced roster of Italy’s National Team for the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Ankara, Turkey (January 4-9, 2016) many wondered why some names weren’t on the list.



He waived some experienced players, but the biggest surprise was the absence of Eleonora Lo Bianco and Francesca Piccinini.

“Various kinds of things dictated my final decision: physical, technical and complete availability. I took into account the characteristics of the players that might help them to do preparations in short time. Eleonora Lo Bianco has not given up on the national team, but she made a painful and responsible choice. Everything that she has done for the national team as an athlete and a person should be respected. Francesca Piccinini is not well at the moment. I’m sorry to have to give up on her,” Bonitta explained his choices.
