The season of the women's national team will officially begin next Monday and will take place at the Pavesi Center in Milan until Friday 12. For the first team, the technical commissioner, Julio Velasco, has summoned sixteen athletes who have completed their club activity. Over the next few years, other players will be added gradually as they complete their commitments with their respective teams. The Italians still do not have a ticket for the Paris Olympics in their pocket and will have to earn it in the next two months. “We start the activity with the athletes who did not participate in the playoffs and with those eliminated in the quarterfinals,” says Velasco. “The next call-up will see the addition of the players who emerged in the semi-final and, still depending on how the play-offs go, there will be a third and fourth group after the conclusion of the championship and the Champions League superfinal .

“My idea is to give all the girls a week's rest after the last match played. Our aim is to be ready for the first round of the Nations League, where the players involved in the Champions League Superfinal do not will not be present, except in case of specific needs. But during the second stage in Macau, we will present ourselves with the full team as in Japan.

During this period, the national team will strive to better prepare for the Nations League, which in the group stage awards the final points in the world rankings when moving to five rings. The Italians will make their VNL debut in Antalya (Turkey) from May 14 to 18, before taking the field in Macau (China, from May 29 to June 2) and finally in Fukuoka (Japan) from June 11 to 16. The final will be held in Bangkok from June 20 to 23.
