the origins of the team


2000 Trentino Volley has a rather recent,
yet strongly rooted history

It was 23rd May 2000 when Diego Mosna, an entrepreneur in paper production, decided to take a big and important step: along with his Holding Diatec and friend and councillor Alberto Ciurletti, he decided to buy A1 league sport rights from the team Porto Ravenna and bring volleyball to Trentino Alto Adige. During the previous ten years, Mezzolombardo was Trentino’s main team and it was able to reach A2 league in a short period of time as well as bring many people closer to this sport.

Diego Mosna was sponsor of that very team with his Diatec brand and he wanted to believe in a movement that was getting more and more exciting for the province, that had never reached such high levels in an important sport like volleyball. To do this, Diego Mosna turned to Gruppo Itas Assicurazioni for support, since the group was already main sponsor for Mezzolombardo. The chairman of the group, Mr. Edo Benedetti (see photo on the left with Mosna and Alberto Ciurletti) soon became the team’s biggest fan and ITAS main sponsor of the team during its first thirteen years of life.
