Grottazzolina with Claudio Cattaneo


After second line and middle, a first graft of the Videx Yuasa to come finally arrives in the band. The partnership from the Marche draws again from the South and again from Castellana Grotte, a team with which Claudio Cattaneo (just like the already announced Andrea Marchisio) played in the last A2 series championship, winning a seventh place in the regular season and the round of 16 playoffs . The personal roadmap speaks of 26 matches played, 66 sets played and 146 points overall (116 winning attacks, 14 aces and 16 block-points).

Class of ’97, 192 cm, born in Pietra Ligure and raised in Loano in the province of Savona. Cattaneo appears on the stage of the A2 in 2016 when he marries the Mondovì project. After two consecutive seasons he moved to Parella Torino where he played in the B championship to regain, just a year later, the spotlight of Serie A: Tipiesse Cisano Bergamasco first and then Pineto (both in A3). The 2021/22 sports season sees him protagonist again in Serie A2 among the ranks of the newly promoted Motta di Livenza, the rest is recent history.

“I thank the whole club, from the coach to the staff up to the managers, for the opportunity they wanted to give me – said the new signing of Videx Yuasa -. Grottazzolina is preparing a competitive team with which I am sure we will have fun. Yes it is a very ambitious project, developed by a reality that provides everything needed to put us in a position to work well and give our best.”

Maturity and responsibility available for a new challenge to be taken up under the best auspices: “I consider myself a very determined and dedicated guy to work so I can guarantee that I will give my best starting from every single training session – continued Cattaneo -. I am very curious to learn more about the environment and all our fans who I am sure will give us an edge in the face of every home match. I’m also pleased to find a teammate like Andrea Marchisio, he’s a very competitive athlete with whom I had a great time last year. By virtue of all these factors, I can define myself as extremely enthusiastic for the new season to come. The A2 series is reaching ever higher levels of play and this requires us to face the championship by reasoning from match to match but if we are willing to work hard all together I am sure we will get some great satisfaction.”
