He had proved himself an up-and-coming star within volleyball, by achieving the Finals MVP award at the 2014-2015 Italian Volleyball League won by his team against Modena Volley. He then followed the trend up by taking the starting 7 in the national team, despite competition by players like Dragan Travica, Michele Baranowicz and Marco Falaschi.

In his first year in the national team he won a silver medal at the 2015 FIVB Volleyball Men's World Cup and a bronze medal at the 2015 Men's European Volleyball Championship, where he was also awarded the prize for best setter, the youngest in the history of the tournament.
