Club

Galli started his professional career with ACF Fiorentina, where he played nine seasons. In 1986-87, he joined A.C. Milan, being first choice for three of his four years. Galli was the starting goalkeeper in the club's consecutive European Cup conquests, in 1989 and 1990.

Following Milan's signing of Sebastiano Rossi, Galli left, going on to represent S.S.C. Napoli, Torino Calcio and AC Parma, retiring after 1995-96 after a stint with A.S. Lucchese-Libertas of Serie B.

He then joined Hellas Verona as its sporting director, also working as a TV and radio commentator. Galli is the father of the late Niccolò Galli, a promising young footballer who died in a road accident in 2001, aged 17.

International

Galli took part in Italy's 1982 World Cup expedition, without playing any match. His national team debut happened on a match against Greece, on 5 October 1983.

As a starter, Galli played in the 1986 edition, as Italy were ousted in the round of 16 by France.

Politics

On 1 March 2009 Galli was announced as the People of Freedom mayoral candidate in the 2009 local elections in Florence.
