Vittorio Parigini joined Torino youth academy when he was 10 years old and since his very early years has shown a great football talent. He was added to Primavera squad in 2012 and managed to score 5 goals in 17 matches of Campionato Primavera despite being only 16. Before the current season he was sent on loan to Serie B side Juve Stabia to gain experience at the senior level and so far played in 8 games at the second-highest division in the Italian football league system. He was a member and a very effective substitute of the Italy U-17 team, which won a silver medal at the UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship 2013 in Slovakia. Few months later, at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in United Arab Emirates he was already a first team regular, but young “Squadra Azzurra” boys failed and were eliminated by Mexico already in the round of 16.
“The age gap does not stop Vittorio, who shows his qualities: great physical strength, good technique, acceleration and explosiveness.”
