Our Board

(nicknamed “the Small Council”)

Eva Varagnolo


She hesitantly pushed the door of the Via Bruxellensis room in December 2017 and was hooked from the first contact with the blade. Passionate about larp, married to a capoeirist, she favours the beautiful gesture to the strike at any cost. Concerned about details and the respect of the discipline while keeping a playful and friendly approach, she is also in charge of the Via Bruxellensis Juniores courses for children from 10 to 14 years old. Eva became President of the club in March 2023 after serving as Secretary of the ASBL under the presidency of Benjamin Cassart, the club’s founder.
