The first new piece of Vero Volley Monza that is presented is Ran Takahashi. He will be the first Japanese athlete to wear the Consorzio Vero Volley jacket, after the experiences of two other oriental athletes in Lombardy: Wang Chen (14/15 season, first Chinese to play in Italy) and Gao Qi (15/16 sports year) , also from China.
