Giorgio Venturin

Updated: Aug 22, 2023

Giorgio Venturin played for Lazio from 1994 to 1999.

He was born in Bollate on June 9 1968. He began his footballing career with Torino in 1983 and stayed there, with the exception of a year on loan at Cosenza in Serie B in 1988 and one in Naples in 1990, until 1993.


He signed for Lazio in 1994, wanted by Zdenek Zeman, but a year later Lazio sent him on loan to Cagliari. Back at Lazio in 1996 he stayed until January 1999 when he was sold to Atletico Madrid. With the Biancocelesti he was one of the key players in the transition from Zeman’s team to Sven Goran Eriksson’s triumphant squad. With Lazio he won a Coppa Italia, a Super Coppa and a Cup Winners Cup.


His adventure with Atletico did not go too well, as the Colchoneros were relegated in his second year. He returned to Torino in 2000 and stayed a couple of years before ending his professional career first with Taranto and then with Cisco Lodigiani.


Venturin later went on to train the youth teams of Cisco Roma and in 2008 was Director of the club. He now works for the Italian Under-21 national team as a talent scout.


Giorgio Venturin was a good midfielder and was fundamental in Lazio’s win against Milan in the Coppa Italia final of 1998. He played 119 games for Lazio (80 in Serie A, 20 in Coppa Italia, 4 in the Cup Winners Cup, 14 in the UEFA Cup and one Super Coppa final) and scored three goals, two in Serie A and one in the UEFA Cup. He also had one cap for Italy.
