Unlike his brother Enrico, who is a specialist in the sword, Daniele starts with the foil, continuing the positive and victorious Italian tradition. After a successful career in the Youth National team, with positive continental and worldwide results, he also won major championships, bringing home a silver medal in the individual category of the European championships and a gold medal in the team category. This result has led to his first presence at an Olympic event, in which he intends to defend the title Italy has maintained since Athens 2004.
