Team Bio

The six-time European champions can boast a very impressive record of achievements. Italy won their latest EuroVolley crown in 2005 and their last medal - bronze - came in 2015. They are the second most-decorated team (behind Russia) at the continental event with six gold, four silver and three bronze medals. Along with Russia they are also the most regular EuroVolley competitor as they will be making their 31st appearance in 2021. Italy claimed three straight world championship titles (1990, 1994, 1998), they also have three silver and three bronze medals earned at the Olympic Games. They are the Rio 2016 runners-up, but at Tokyo 2020 they lost in the quarterfinals to Argentina.
