Source Lazio Wiki

He started playing for Lazio at a very early age and was a pillar of the Biancoceleste midfield from 1922 to 1927. In those years there was no Serie A, in which he never played. Italy was divided into regional groups and the winner of the Centre-South groups played against the winner of the Northern group. The difference between the two  was enormous and the Northern Italian team won every single time. In 1926-27 the was finally a national competition with 20 teams divided into two groups with the top three going to a final group, the winner of which would be champions. The same formula applied for the 1927-28 championship (but with an extra two teams). In 1928-29 the two groups had 16 teams each, the top teams then met in the final. In 1929, finally there was a national competition as we know it today.


Lazio in the years Nesi played for them reached the national final once in 1922-23, losing to Genoa, and the semi-final group twice , in 1923-24 and 1924-25.


Nesi made 69 appearances for Lazio with three goals. In 1930-31 he played for the Roma reserves team and in 1931 he signed for Robur Siena. He then came back to Rome to play for the Monte dei Paschi Sporting Group. He retired in 1935.


He was a great midfield player and played with every manager in those years because of his reliability and tactical strength.


He died in Rome on June 7, 1982
