Giancarlo Camolese (born February 25, 1961 in Turin) is an Italian football (soccer) manager, former of Pro Vercelli and former player.



Camolese started his professional career with hometown club Torino. He then played for Biellese, Reggina, Alessandria, Lazio, Padova, Vicenza and Taranto. He retired from professional football in 1993.


Camolese started his managing career working as Torino's youth coach. He was appointed as first team coach in 2001 following Luigi Simoni's sacking, and led the granata to immediate promotion in Serie A and a safe escape from relegation one year later. Sacked on October 2002 because of poor results, he returned into coaching in 2003, replacing Franco Colomba at the helm of Reggina, and avoiding relegation once again; this however proved not to be enough for Camolese to be confirmed for the next season.

He served as Vicenza head coach in their 2005-06 campaign, as well as the first five Serie B 2006-07 matches, before being fired and replaced by Angelo Gregucci. He was appointed to replace Fernando Orsi as Livorno boss in October 2007,[1] being however sacked himself on April 28, 2008, leaving Livorno down in bottom place with three league matches remaining.[2]

On March 24, 2009 he made a comeback as Torino coach, replacing Walter Novellino at the helm of the granata with the goal to lead his club off the Serie A relegation zone.[3] However, by the end of the season owing to the Granata's relegation, he was sacked and replaced by Stefano Colantuono.

On 2012, 15 October he was named new coach of Pro Vercelli in Serie B,[4] but on 3 January 2013 he was sacked replaced by his predecessor Maurizio Braghin.
