Italian Gymnasts

Italian Rhythmic Gymnastics has always been very interesting: names like Samantha Ferrari, the only one who was able to get a bronze medal during World Championships, Irene Germini, Katia Pietrosanti... then, the "Second Generation", whose top can be considered the '96 World Championships, where the Italian team got an excellent result and many congratulations. It was a great promise for the future (read the interview about it). It was the time of the great Susanna Marchesi, Laura Zacchilli, Arianna Rusca, Martina Nadalini. At the same time, Italian Group was getting good results, too: look at the Sydney experience... Unfortunately, mass media never understood its importance, and rhythmic gymnastics has always been almost unknown. But we think that the Italian gymnastics is developing and developing, better and better, and we're waiting for always new stars to come out: GOOD LUCK! That's reason of these pages... hope you will enjoy them and learn something more...
