Today, new middle blocker Stefano Patriarca was unveiled. Patriarca came up in the Macerata youth ranks. His pro debut began with spells in Santa Croce and Crema before he made it into the top division with Castellana Grotte. In 2013-14, he came back to the club where he grew up, Macerata, and helped the team win the league title. Last season he played for Milan.

“I am thrilled to be in Piacenza – he said – The first thing an athlete want is to be in a club with top level managers and coaching staff and that’s what I have in Piacenza. I have already worked with Giuliani in Macerata, we won the league together there. I was hoping to be able to work with him again in the future and my wish came true”.
