Italy

The history of the Italian Boy's Youth national team is short but, just like their national team, is full of success. Its first official participation was in 1995 at the European Championships in Barcelona, where it was defeated 3-1 in the final match by Russia.

In the same year Italy also won the silver medal at the World Championship in Puerto Rico behind Brazil.

In the summer of 1997 Italy conquered the World Championships in Teheran and then the European Championships in Slovakia.

In 2003 in Zagreb Italy won the bronze medal at the European Championship and will be one of the favourites heading into the 2003 Boy's U19 World Championship in Thailand.
