According to “iVOLLEY Magazine”, experienced setter Eleonora Lo Bianco returned to the National Team of Italy after almost a year! She got summoned by head coach Marco Bonitta for the last stage of preparation for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Alessia Orro, who suffered injury during the match against The Netherlands, definitely will miss out Rio Olympics.

Lo Bianco, record holder with 544 appearances in the national team jersey, retired after the 2015 CEV European Championship due to personal reasons and poor physical conditions.
