8402 0

Six-time champion of Italy, Alessandro Farina now sells salami and cheese.

 

This summer Farina retired at age of 38, after two seasons spent in Vibo Valentia. With his wife Elena he opened the store on wheels:

It was a life choice. I do not regret at all because volleyball gave me so much but now I have a family and I wanted to spend more time with them

Until a few months ago Farina was one of the strongest “defenders”in the Italian volleyball. He won six titles in Serie A1 with Sisley Treviso, four Italian Cup, three Champions League and many other CEV trophies. He played 609 matches for Sisley in 14th seasons.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
