CANICATTI - The Italian three cushion championship, played according to the World Cups system, was won by Marco Zanetti for the 27th time. The 56-year-old champion took his eleventh title in a row in Canicatti, Sicily. In the final, Zanetti defeated the young talent Alessio d'Agata, who won the title under 21.
