Aldo Spivach was born in Udine on January 15, 1909. He started his football career with Udinese where he debuted professionally and in 1928 signed for Lazio. In his first year Lazio were in Group B of the National Division. The top eight would play in the next season’s first Serie A tournament. Lazio came joint eighth with Napoli and were forced to a play-off which took place in Milan. The result was 2-2 so there should have been a re-match but, in the end, both teams “qualified” for Serie A so Lazio were on the starting blocks in 1929-30 for the first Serie A championship.


The opening game was Lazio Bologna and after 15 minutes Spivach scored the first Lazio goal in Serie A. He continued to play for the Biancocelesti until 1932 when he signed for Padova. He stayed there a couple of years and in 1934 he moved to Bologna. After just one season he signed for Sampierdarenese (called Liguria at the time). The club would later merge with Doria and become Sampdoria. He stayed there four years before returning to Udine for the final two years of his career.


He was one of the few players who managed to get a degree (in Economics) whilst playing.


He died in Udine on January 6 1968.


He will be forever remembered in the Lazio history books for that first goal against Bologna. He was a good attacking midfielder and during his time at Lazio he made 74 appearances with 26 goals.
