The girls from Bregoli played a beautiful first set, but they failed in continuity and in the next two halves they suffered the game of the South Americans. Melli and her teammates reacted in the fourth set, but after a long point to point they had to surrender to their opponents.
At the end of the first two weeks of competition, the young blue team collected 2 points and in the general classification occupies the penultimate position.

Tonight there are several innovations presented by Giulio Bregoli in the initial formation: Bosio in dribble, opposite Mingardi, D’Odorico and Melli spikers, central Lubian and Bonifacio, free De Bortoli.
Since the first exchanges, Italy has shown an excellent attitude (8-7), Bosio in the direction has often called into question the central couple Bonifacio-Lubian, very precise and effective in attack (16-14). The girls from Bregoli found good continuity in batting and this put the South Americans in difficulty (18-15). Bosio managed the advantage perfectly, while the opponents ran into a series of mistakes and Italy did not miss an opportunity to close (25-19).
The performance of the second fraction was very different, Brazil started strong and Italy struggled (5-10). The blue reception dropped and so Bosio was unable to trigger his attackers as in the first set (9-16). Lubian and her teammates also lost their brilliance on the serve and the disadvantage grew further (12-20). Bregoli made several changes, in Battistoni, Furlan and Guerra, but Brazil imposed itself by force (15-25).
In the third set Brazil tried to escape again, while the blue who at first tried to replicate (6-9). The subsequent phases, on the other hand, saw the girls from Bregoli go into difficulty and lose ground (9-14). Italy was no longer able to shorten, having to yield to the opponents (19-25).
The tricolor national team grew in the fourth set and, thanks to an inspired Giulia Melli, held up against the Brazilians (13-13). Brazil tried to stretch several times and the Italians did their best to stay in contact (17-17). Rosamaria launched the decisive escape of the South Americans and the match ended on (19-25).
Camilla Mingardi (Italy) – «It was a difficult match, but we knew that Brazil are a very strong team. We started well, then in the next two sets we struggled, while in the fourth we went better. Now we will have three days to recover and train, we are a young team and it is important to grow game after game. We need a lot of work to improve, we will do our best in the next matches to get good results ».
