smart Grand Slam Rome | Men

PRESENTATION

FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Championship to get gladiatorial make-over in Rome

After staging a truly magnificent World Championships in 2011, Rome will welcome back the world's top teams for a Grand Slam event from June 13-17. The Italian capital hosted its first men's World Tour event in 2009 when Germany’s Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann won men’s titles on the Parco del Foro Italico center court. But in 2010 the tournament was upgraded to a Grand Slam. USA's Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser won, fighting off Brazil's Alison Cerutti and Emanuel Rego as Spanish duo Pablo Herrera and Adrian Gavira secured third. But Alison and Emanuel did the ultimate in 2011, clinching the World Championship title with victory over Marcia Araujo and Ricardo Santos in the final while Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann took home bronze. Rome is Italy's largest and most populous city with over 2.7-million residents. Located in the central-western portion of the Italian peninsula on the Tiber river, Rome's history as a city spans over two and a half thousand years, as one of the founding cities of Western Civilization. Even outside of the history of the Roman Empire, Rome has a significant place in the story of Christianity up to the present day as the home of the Roman Catholic Church. As one of the few major European cities that escaped World War II relatively unscathed, central Rome remains essentially Renaissance and Baroque in character. Rome is the third-most-visited tourist destination in the European Union.
