Eighteen years after the first time. From baby promise to absolute champion. Salvatore ‘Totò’ Rossini returns to Aversa, he will be the new free of Virtus in the Serie A2 championship. An absolute masterpiece of the Norman society, a shot that comes directly from the SuperLega, the top division of Italian volleyball. President Sergio Di Meo has given Campania one of the most important signings in the history of the Region, a luxury that will inflame the PalaJacazzi. Like two old friends Rossini and Di Meo meet and embrace each other because the esteem, affection and above all the great friendship that has existed for years has never faded despite the years.
As we were saying, Rossini returns to the city of a hundred churches where he practically kicked off his adventure in this wonderful sport: it was the 2005-06 season when he made his debut in Serie B1. Suffice it to recall that on that occasion the president of the club was always Sergio Di Meo, who recalls how “already on those occasions you could see Totò’s great human and technical skills. What we have managed to build is special, a ‘heart book’ that gives me emotions. They are those things that reward sacrifices, we live with intense moments and passion. This is one of the most beautiful pages of my life as president of Aversa volleyball”.
Rossini is simply a phenomenon, a top player who also brought prestige to our Italy with the blue shirt. He won a silver at the 2013 European Championships, a bronze at the 2013 Grand Champions Cup, obtained a bronze and was elected best free skater at the 2014 World League. Then later also a bronze medal at the 2015 European Championships and a silver at the Olympics in Rio 2016. Always starring. In SuperLega he also played with Monza, Latina, and Trento but his name was compared for 7 seasons to that of Modena, one of the most important realities in the world, with which he conquered the Cev only a few months ago.
At the age of 37 (to be completed in July), therefore, the native of Latina returns a few steps from home “to practically close the circle – said the libero in yesterday’s press conference at the Dodici restaurant in via Cupa Scoppa in Aversa -, it was a strongly desired choice. I am ready for a new challenge. Aversa has been missing from the SuperLega for too long, in three years we want to get to the top Italian league. I expect a large audience at the arena, we have to try to do something really important. I can’t wait to kick off this new adventure of mine.”
