Alongside them is Italian National Team athletes Giulia Rizzi who is the winner of the last World Cup in Vancouver, Roberta Marzani, Nicol Foietta and Gaia Traditi.

“Beauty in an Act” is a joint initiative resulting from the cooperation between the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Italian Fencing Federation, aimed at promoting Italy's tradition and excellence in fencing through the involvement of the athletes and coaches of the national team.

Historically, Italy is one of the first countries in which fencing developed, dating back from the Renaissance until the setting of the sport's rules in the 19th century. Such tradition is carried on in international tournaments and in the Olympic Games, where Italy holds the record of the most medals ever won, with a score of 130.
