Alessandro Campagna is one of the few who managed to continue his competitive playing success in his coaching career. As a player, he won the Olympic, World and European title from ’92 -’94.
After a cycle with the Greek national team, in autumn 2008 he took over his Italian Settebello. Three years later, he led them to the title of the world champion in Shangai. In 2016 they reached the bronze at the Olympic Games in Rio. At this year’s world championships, they met Croatia in the quarterfinals. The game could have gone both ways, but in the end, Croatia went all the way.
