Walter Bonacina (born 30 July 1964 in Bergamo) is an Italian association football coach and former player, currently in charge as youth team coach of Atalanta Primavera.

Playing career

He spent the majority of his career playing for Atalanta (10 seasons, 7 of which in Serie A) and A.S. Roma (3 seasons), and retired in 2002.

Coaching career

From 2003 to 2007 he served as assistant manager of Atalanta. In July 2007 he was then moved in charge of the Allievi Regionali youth team, and was successively promoted at the helm of the Primavera under-19 team in July 2009.

On January 8, 2010 he was then appointed head coach of Atalanta in a caretaker role, following Antonio Conte's resignation from his managerial position at the club.[1] He then guided Atalanta on a Serie A Week 19 game ended in a 0–1 away loss to Palermo on January 10, 2009, and returned to his previous role after Bortolo Mutti was appointed as head coach the very next day.[2]
