Curtains closed at the Italian National Championships held this year at the Wurth Arena in Egna. Five Junior and three Senior teams joined the challenge to be crowned champions.

On the first day of the short program, both categories were most focused on alignment through the elements and deep edges for steps and turns. Sadly there were a few falls but all the skaters reacted strongly and were able to retain their position and thus completing the programs.

On Friday, the free program segment didn't bring changes to the standings, even though the programs were skated better than in Aosta. In fast, the scores were higher than the previous competition.

There was only one scaring moment in the Senior segment, during a lift element one of the supporting skaters fell thus making the lifted one fall hard on her face, luckily she was able to somehow protect herself and so she skated the whole program.
