    Italian skating/skaters news

    This is my first thread ever so I hope I didn't do anything wrong...
    From the Pflumm/Guarise thread:

    Last weekend I also had the time to translate two interviews I made during worlds (they have been published in italian a few weeks ago): one with Stefania Berton and Hondrej Hotarek, the other with Meryl Davis in italian. I'm not sure if I can post it here as it's not about an italian skater, but I recorded it as Meryl was doing an interview in italian for the first time

    Links to the interviews:

    Here's the direct link to the post in the Pflumm/Guarise (new Italian pair) thread in GSD (I suppose you could post any translations in that thread?): http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...5&postcount=24

    Thanks for starting this Italian skating news thread, pingu!

    It basically says that on October 1st there will be a figure skating show at the Arena di Verona. Skaters will skate accompained by the orchestra and choir of the Arena, skating to the six operas of the Arena season 2012: Don Giovanni, Aida, Carmen, Romeo e Giulietta, Turandot, Tosca. The patroness of this event will be Carolina Kostner, that will use the money gained with this show for the association "One Heart One World", that helps families with cardiopathic kids.
    Stéphane Lambiel will skate in this show too.

    I'm going to be there

    I think it's the promotional video. As Cappellini Lanotte are in the video, I assume they will be in the gala too.

    I can't see the vid, it's geo-blocked. Can it be seen somewhere else?
    I found an introduction vid on the homepage.
    http://www.operaonice.eu
    but cannot re-watch it.

    There doesn't seem to be an english version yet so if someone needs help you can ask me
    If you click on "acquista ora" (buy now) you can find a list of the links where to buy the tickets once they will be available.

    Lambiel often confirms participation very late... sometimes a week before the show

    new pair

    Apparently there is a new italian pair junior age elegible:
    Alessandra CERNUSCHI/Filippo AMBROSINI.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2llU...el_video_title

    The quality of the video is not very good, but it seems that they are still far from being a couple. They are 2 good single skater skating together...
    However, they could be promising.
    Filippo is 2010 Junior Men National Champion and has various international experiences in this category (3 JGPs, NRW and Mont Blanc Trophy).
    Alessandra is a young talented promise in Ladies Single and had very good placements in Novice and in Juniors (8th last year in Nationals).
    Here are some recent videos from their singles career.

    Hope they will be ready to participate into the JGP!

    According to this article, Valentina Marchei will train in Detroit with Dungjen and Sato: "Three-time ladies Italian champion Valentina Marchei will join the group this weekend."

    After her injury occurred during Euros, she only did rehabilitation for a while, so I think that now she's back in shape again

    Valentina Marchei's change was confirmed last week by "gazzetta dello sport"

    http://archiviostorico.gazzetta.it/2...10623089.shtml

    and by this http://dreamingonice.blogspot.com/20...asferisce.html

    I think it's a good choice for her, since Morozov team this year has increased with Leonova and Gedevanishvili.
    Plus, she said to "Gazzetta" that she needs a coach able to follow her all the time, and that's was certainly difficult with Morozov.
