    Interesting pairing ... would love to see how they look together on the ice. I've seen videos of Matteo with his former roller skating partner, Sara Venerucci. Couldn't find any clips of Kaela Pflumm with her former ice skating partner. However, here are links to separate photos of Kaela and Matteo (who is also famous for his modeling). They seem to have a kind of facial resemblance ...

    Btw Matteo has his "diary" about the American experience published on Italian skating magazine Doppio Axel www.doppioaxel.it or http://www.facebook.com/pages/Doppio...1509228?ref=ts (Italian only, sorry )

    So do gymnastics mums.

    -- Although, one big difference I see in Italy between roller skating and gymnastics on one side, and figure skating on the other, would be about how much money parents have to put in. That sort of comes in the way.

    Does someone want to start a general Italian skating news thread?
    ETA: Thanks to pingu for starting one : http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79001
    (Go to the new thread for a video link of Stefania Berton/Ondrej Hotarek's "Caruso" exhibition at Festa sul Ghiaccio 2011)

    Sk8swan, do you know where Pflumm/Guarise plan to make their summer competition debut?

    Actually, he started with a Russian partner in June 2010, but the couple split in August.
    Glad to see that finally Matteo found a new partner and had a positive test with the Italian Federation.
    The best would be if Yannick finds an italian partner and goes on representing Italy! We got so many ladies in single with double axel and triple salchow and I am sure that there must be 1 willing to try pairs!!!
    Are you referring to Yannick Bonheur or some other Yannick?

    Would Carol Bressanutti or one of the Garlisi sisters be willing to switch to pairs? After Stefania Berton made such a successful switch, hopefully it would encourage other single skaters to give it a try.

    ^^ That's very beautiful! Isn't that Matteo with Sara V, his former roller skating partner? I at first thought this link was going to be a view of Matteo and his new ice skating partner performing together.

    I wonder how difficult/ different the transition is from pairs roller skating to pairs ice skating.
