Giampiero Pinzi was born in Rome, on March 11, 1981.


Pinzi was a solid, dynamic central midfielder who could play both in front of the defence and behind the forward line. He was a product of the Lazio youth sector having played through all the various age groups joining the first team squad in 1999. He was therefore part of the “scudetto” winning team of 2000 but without getting any Serie A playing time. The following year he joined Udinese, to try to carve out a more active role for himself. His career then took him to Chievo Verona for 2 years and then back to Udine for another 5 years. In 2015 he returned to Chievo before joining Brescia for a year and then ending his career at Padova.


Pinzi only played 4 matches for Lazio (3 in Coppa Italia and 1 in Champions League) but he won the Scudetto and Coppa Italia double in 1999-2000. Pinzi's heart belonged to Lazio, as he repeatedly quoted in interviews but he will be best remembered in the black and white Udinese jersey which he wore an impressive 305 times.


At International level he played 21 times for the Under 21 national side winning a European Championship winners medal. He also won a bronze medal with the Italian Olympic team at Beijing 2004 and won his only full Italian cap in 2015.
