Lausanne, Switzerland, March 15, 2019 - Federica Tonon / Martina Tagliapietra and Luca Fazio / Simone Gentile emerged winners of the 5th stage of the Italian Acqua San Bernardo Snow Volley Tour 2x2 tournament, held on Monte Zoncolan of the Carnic Alps in northeastern Italy.

The Italian snow volleyball tour will next stop in Breuil-Cervinia of the Aosta Valley, before the 'Grand Finale' at Prato Nevoso at the end of the month, which with over 350 participants has been the largest snow volleyball event in the world for years.

The Prato Nevoso event, in the Piedmont, will be held in combination with the European Snow Volleyball Tour stop, which already boasts the confirmed presence of Troy Field and the McKibbin brothers, Maddison and Riley - directly from the USA's AVP.

At Monte Zoncolan Fazio / Gentile beat Matteo Carlon / Stefano De Monti 2-1 (15-13, 13-15, 15-13) in the men's final. Tonon / Tagliapietra shut out Virgina Casella / Jessica Chiesa 2-0 (15-4, 15-7) in the women's final.

"The Acqua San Bernardo Snow Volley Tour is growing at every stage," said Matteo Carlon, president of organisers Snow Volley Italia. "Both from a technical and a qualitative point of view".
