Participants110 from 21 countries

The team event was held a few days before the individual epée and gave a very strong hint as to the domination that the Italians would show in that event.

The Italian team included the three men who would sweep the individual medals and they never looked like losing as they swept their way to the title. Included in the team was 17-year-old newcomer Edoardo Mangiarotti who would still be competing and winning medals in 1960 in Rome. The silver medal was decided on a desperately close decision in favour of Sweden who tied 8-8 against France but were awarded victory on the basis of more hits, 32-31. The Swedish team included Hans Granfelt, who had previously appeared at the Olympics as a discus thrower, and two Olympic modern pentathlon champions in the shape of Sven Thofelt and Gustaf Dyrssen.
