Simone Giannelli was born in Bolzano on August 9th, 1996. He is the best volleyball setter in the world. He started from the bottom but already at the age of 18 he reached the highet level of Italian Volleyball. Today he is the symbol of Italian volleyball, captain of both SIR Safety Perugia and Italian national team, leading the letter to victory at the European and World Chiampionships.
His greatest characteristic is humility. His mindset is always set to “we” and never to “I” in order to remind that volleyball is a team effort. He loves travelling, Japanese manga and studying very much. He is enrolled in the Faculty of Food Science and Gastronomy in Milan.
Lily, a cute Dobermann, has recently joined his life. The dream of his life is to open a farmhouse in Trentino with his family. Even though he is now playing –and living- in Perugia, he is deeply rooted into his motherland.
