Selected questions from our interview with captain Andrea Ciavatti:

How many players does your team have? How many of them are making their beach debut?

We are in thirteen players, with a good mixing between expert beach players and some new emerging ones. Only 3 player are making their debut on the beach, and seven of us had played for Italy at last World Beach Championship in Lignano.

How has your team's season gone so far? What tournaments have you played?

Most of us begin beach season playing in Paganello on Easter, and then playing with their club in the top series of national championship, so we are in the middle of season with a good fitness training.

Who do you think will be the big contenders for the title in your division?

Switzerland is of course the favorite team for this tournament, because they were the first European team in Lignano, and have strong and experienced players. But in the last three years Germany is grew up, with a lot of young and strong players, so it could be a good contender.
