Manuela Leggeri



Born in 1976, Manuela Leggeri took over as captain of the Italian national team, replacing the long-standing Maurizia Cacciator and has been an integral part in Italy's rise in women's Volleyball since.

She made her debut with the national team in 1994 and has since made 223 international appearances.

A gifted and courageous middle blocker, Leggeri both admired and is a source of inspiration to her teammates.

She was part of the team that won the silver medal at the European Championship in Bulgaria and the gold medal at the Mediterranean Games in Tunisia.

She also helped the team to make Olympic Qualification (Sydney 2000) for the first time in their history.
