Following initial contacts that the ASA General Secretary, Mr. Remy Damato had with the President of the Federazione Italiana Nuoto (FIN), Sen. Paolo Barelli, and the subsequent meetings held in Rome and Pescara, involving the President of the Aquatic Sports Association (ASA) and Malta Water Polo Referees Association, Dr Austin Sammut and Mr Mario Dalli, respectively, the first step was taken to, amongst other things, introduce Maltese referees to Italian Water Polo in an effort to increase their exposure and increase their standard, which is already acceptable both locally and internationally.

An initial agreement, subject to the Council approval of both the ASA and the Federazione Italiana Nuoto (FIN)  was signed this week in the presence of the General Secretary, Mr Remy Damato and the Hon. President Mr Bertie Muscat, by the ASA President, Dr Austin Sammut, MWRA Representatives, Mr Ivan Sciriha and Mr Massimo Angileri and Dott Nello Russo, special delegate of Sen. Paolo Barelli, President of Federazione Italiana Nuoto (FIN) who is also the new General Secretary of FINA and a Vice-President of LEN.

During the meetings, other areas of collaboration in the competitive sectors of both the swimming and water polo disciplines were discussed but at this stage it is too early to go into any detail.
