Italian Volleyball Federation made a great move by establishing “Club Italia Project”, which gathers the best young scouted Italian female players to develop their skills in a senior competitive league rather than in youth leagues.
Thanks to the initiative of Argentine expert Julio Velasco in 1998, Club Italia was born, reached top division over time and launched many players to the senior national team of Italy – Egonu, Malinov, Danesi… Giulia Mancini still is not part of this group of players but if she continues to play like this, she will be soon.
In a win of her team against Yamamay Busto Arsizio, the 18-year-old middle blocker, who is a member of Italian Junior NT and Italian U23 NT, made eight serves in a row! Three of them were aces while the rest have caused huge problems to Busto’s defense.
The streak has started in the fourth set at 6-4 for Club Italia…
