Five years ago, in Rio, Italy was gold with the foil player Daniele Garozzo and three times in silver: in the individual tests with the foil player Elisa Di Francisca and with the swordsman Rossella Fiamingo, while he was second place for the men’s sword team with Enrico Garozzo, Daniele’s older brother, Andrea Santarelli, Marco Fichera e Paolo Pizzo.
