After parting ways with its head coach last week, Lardini Fillottrano has just announced in its official website that it has parted ways with Italian national teamer middle blocker Giulia Pisani only six weeks after her signing. The note states that the decision to end Pisani’s stay in the A1 club was mutual, and the player thanked the team for her time in Fillottrano:
I thank the team for all that they gave me this month, it was a pleasure to meet all the girls and I really wish the team the best
The 25 year old middle blocker played with Busto Arsizio since 2014, with which she won may domestic titles, before signing with Fillottrano. As for national team experience, she has played in Italy’s national squad in every age group, including the senior team. As a youth, she won the CEV’s 2010 U19 European Championship and the FIVB 2011 Girl’s U19 Championship. She also won best blocker awards in CEV’s 2009 U18 European Championship and CEV’s 2010 U19 European Championship.
Due to transfer rules, Pisani was only going to able to debut for Filottrano on January. The team did not go into details on why the partnership ended. Although, this cryptic Instagram message she posted on her personal page yesterday may give fans the impression that the parting wasn’t as friendly as Fillotrrano made it to be:
If we gratefully accept what life gives us, we discover that we are on this earth to create something that no one else can do in our place
