Rome – The Italian Swimming Federation mourns Ferdinando “Nando” Pesci, coach of the national water polo youth teams, who died last night.

Pesci had just returned from Cagliari, where he had won silver in CO.ME.N Cup last Sunday with the under 18 selection.

He was supposed to leave for Tblisi at the helm of the National Under 17 team to take part in the European Championships, scheduled from 11 to 18 August.

“Nando” was 62 years old, and dedicated his life to the boys in the school where he was a teacher and in the swimming pool.

The funeral is scheduled for Thursday 8 August at 10.30 am in the Basilica of Santa Croce in Rome. Nando leaves his wife Cristina and their children Benedetta and Leonardo and a huge void in the hearts of friends and in the world of water polo.
