Felipe Dias da Silva dal Belo commonly known as just Felipe (born 31 July 1984) is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a defender for Serie A club Parma. He has spent his whole professional career at Italian Serie A.
Felipe began his European career with Udinese Calcio, which he made his first team debut in April 2003. He has proven himself as a reliable central defender in Serie A, especially in the 2005–06 season for the club in the UEFA Champions League.
In the 2006–07 season, Felipe missed the rest of the season after he was injured in January. He returned to the team in September 2007 and became one of the key players who helped Udinese qualify for the 2008–09 UEFA Cup. But another injury in March 2008 meant he would miss the rest of the season and he returned in November 2008. He played 6 matches in 2008–09 UEFA Cup, which he missed the front part of the tournament.
But in 2009–10 season, Udinese proven Felipe is not a solid member, which the coach preferred Andrea Coda and Christian Zapata (who changed his role from fullback) as the central defender pair. He only played 3 league matches.
On 2 January 2010, Felipe completed the transfer, signed a loan contract with option to purchase. The loan fee was €3 million. He made his debut for the Viola in a 5–1 away win to Siena. In June 2010 la Viola excised the rights to sign him for €6 million. After a disappointing performance, He was loaned out to Cesena on 31 January 2011.
