Stefano Tacconi (born 13 May 1957 in Perugia) is an Italian association football player. He is the only goalkeeper to have won all international club competitions.

Tacconi got his first significant experience at Spoleto football club. Following this, having already attracted the interest of Inter Milan, he had his first brief stint as a professional with Pro Patria[1] and Livorno before joining Sambenedettese. He then reached Serie A with Avellino in the 1980/1981 season; he remained there for three years before joining the Italian club Juventus FC in 1983.

With Giovanni Trapattoni's Juventus club, Tacconi won 2 scudetti in 1984 and 1986, the European Champion Clubs' Cup in 1985 and the Intercontinental Cup the same year against Argentinos Juniors on penalties. In 1990 Tacconi and Juventus went on to win a UEFA Cup and a Coppa Italia. He was Walter Zenga's reserve at the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy.

After a ten-year working relationship with Juventus FC (during the 1985/1986 season he was kept on the bench), Tacconi transferred to Genoa C.F.C. in 1994. Unfortunately, Genoa was relegated to Serie B at the end of season. Upon displacing Tacconi as Juventus keeper, Angelo Peruzzi claimed that Tacconi was his worst teammate ever.[2]

After quitting professional football, Tacconi had several disappointing experiences in politics. In 1999 he was on Alleanza Nazionale's lists for the European parliamentary elections, but failed to earn a seat. In 2005 he tried to stand for president of Lombardy as a candidate for Nuovo MSI, an extreme right-wing party, but could not garner enough votes to validate his candidacy. In 2006, he put in for a city councilman position in Milan again within Alleanza Nazionale, supporting winner Letizia Moratti for mayor, but gained only 57 personal preferences (votes) and was not elected to the office.

On August 2008, at the age of 51, he accepted an offer from FC Arquata, a Seconda Categoria amateur club based in Arquata del Tronto, Marche, to make a return into active football as a goalkeeper.[3]
