Marco Marchionni (born 22 July 1980 in Monterotondo, Province of Rome) is an Italian footballer who plays as a right winger for Serie A club Fiorentina.


Football career

He began his professional career with Empoli F.C. in 1998, joined form CND team Monterotondo, only to leave the team for Parma in 2001. He played little for two years, and was loaned to Italian club Piacenza for half a season in 2002-2003, in order to get more playing time and increase his skills. His performances were convincing that he was recalled back to Parma and placed in the first team for season 2003-2004.

In 2003-2004, under Cesare Prandelli, who was renowned for his affinity for young players, Marchionni blossomed under his guidance. That season has become a revelation in Marchionni's career with 35 games played and 6 goals scored in Serie A and UEFA Cup. He also make his debut for Italian national team on 12 November 2003 in a friendly against Poland.

The following season was also a positive one, with 32 games played and 6 goals scored. The 2005-2006 season was by far Marchionni's best, he gives great contribution to the team's gameplay, including many assists and many instances of "play-making". He finished the season with 31 appearances and 4 goals. His talent and relatively young age attracted the keen eyes of the Juventus scouts, and the team did not delay in signing him from Parma. Marchionni joined his new team on free transfer in June 2006.[1]



In 2006-2007, Marchionni was playing with Juventus in Serie B. Despite playing in Serie B, he received another call-up to Italian national team in September 2006, where he won his 3rd cap.

During the 2007-2008 Serie A return season, his second with Juventus, Marchionni suffered an injury filled season, keeping him off the pitch for most of the season. He only managed to start one game, but played a total of eleven league matches, scoring one goal.

During the pre-season to the 08-09 Serie A campaign, Marchionni was in excellent form playing in all of the friendly tournaments and matches. He will be hoping to stay in stunning form, and keep injury free for this season's Champions League, Serie A, and Coppa Italia with Juventus.

In the 08-09 Serie A campaign, he had been quickly introduced into the Juventus squad as the first choice winger Mauro Camoranesi was forced off the pitch due to injury problems. He handled this brilliantly with a handful of great performances, including the match against A.S. Roma where he scored a goal.


On 6 July 2009, ACF Fiorentina agreed terms with Juventus to buy Marchionni, subject to personal terms.[2]

On 15 July 2009, Marchionni signed a contract with ACF Fiorentina after having spent three years with Juventus. He was part of a swap plus cash deal that saw midfielder Felipe Melo go the other way to Juventus.[3] Marchionni will join Cesare Prandelli, former coach at Parma, and former teammates Sébastien Frey, Marco Donadel, Alberto Gilardino and Adrian Mutu. He scored his first goal for the Viola against Genoa in a 2–1 defeat on 28 October 2009, repeating this step the following week with a brace against Catania in a 3–1 win and another goal in the next UEFA Champions League encounter against Debreceni.

International career

He capped for Italy U21 at 2002 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, forming the midfield with Matteo Brighi, Andrea Pirlo and Manuele Blasi.
