Since I was a kid, Villa d’Este has been an extremely welcoming club to me and my family”, said Scalise. “I am really happy to have now the opportunity to represent this club around the world and have the opportunity to give something back to the juniors there. That is for sure my number 1 goal for this attachment”.
