Seria A1 newcomers Lardini Filottrano has just announced in its official website that it has signed Giulia Pisani to a contract. The 25 year old middle blocker is transferring from Busto Arsizio, with whom she played since 2014. She will strengthen the team’s middle block position after Asia Cogliandro suffered an ACL injury.
Although due to transfer rules, she won’t be able to debut before Januray 8, Pisani will add some much needed experience and quality for the struggling new team, as she has already played in 135 Seria A1 matches. With Busto Arsizio, she won the Italian Championship, the Italian Cup, The Italian Super Cup, and the CEV Challengers Cup (all in the the 2011-12 season).
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.
