Team // Italy

The Italians have done really well over the past ten years. In 2004 and 2005 they won silver at the World Grand Prix, the following years (2006, 2007, 2008 and 2010) they went home with the bronze medal. In 2011 they came fourth at the European Championship. Last year, however, Italy came a disappointing ninth at the World Grand Prix.
