Younger brother of Fernando Saraceni, one of the legendary figures of the early Lazio days, he started playing for the Biancocelesti in 1921. For three years he played alongside his brother (together they reached the National Championship final of 1923), and was one of Lazio’s more talented players. Perhaps not as technical as Fernando, he however was more powerful and had a greater resistance.


He played 111 games for Lazio and scored 8 goals. Once he stopped playing he worked for the club in various roles even when there were difficult times from a financial point of view.


He died in Rome on April 20, 1972.
