The World Fencing Championship, now in its 69th edition, finally arrives in Milan, a city with a great tradition in terms of blades and platforms (just think of the champions that have given, starting with Edo Mangiarotti, the Name of Fencing at an absolute level, and to the various clubs for competitive and amateur activity) which up to now has always been deserted from the world championships. The gap will be filled from 22 to 30 July at the Allianz MiCo, the Milan Fair at CityLife. Italy, returning from a Sumptuous European (primacy in the medal table of the individual competitions in Plovdiv, with 10 podiums, including three titles; 2 golds, 2 silvers and 2 bronzes, instead in the team trials in Krakow) aims to continue its great tradition. The balance, in fact, speaks of 357 medals in history: 118 gold, 110 silver, 129 bronze. The specialty with the most titles (including team competitions) is men's foil (43), followed by women's foil (33), men's épée (20), men's saber (14), women's épée (5) and women's saber (3: only won in team competitions).
