He started his career at Civitanovese in 1951-52 and the year after he signed for Venezia in Serie C. He stayed there two years before he made the big jump to Fiorentina in Serie A that at the time was one of the biggest clubs in Italy. Thanks to manager Fulvio Bernardini, he improved considerably appearing in 67 league games with 19 goals. In Florence he won a scudetto in 1955-56 (though he only played 6 matches) and reached the European Cup final in 1957 lost to Real Madrid.


In the summer of 1958 he signed for Lazio and was immediately thrown in the team for the 1958 Coppa Italia which they would win in September. He was a powerful right winger, good dribbler, agile, and he scored quite a number of goals for the time. He stayed at Lazio until 1963 appearing in 65 games in Serie A (8 goals), 44 in Serie B (11 goals) and 15 in Coppa Italia with three goals.


In 1963-64 he moved back to Civitanovese for a year and then signed for Maceratese the year after. His last professional season was again at Civitanovese in 1965-66.


He died at Porto Sant’Elpidio on November 6 2016.
