Biography[edit]

Juventus[edit]

Sculli made his Serie A debut on 14 September 2002 for Modena against A.C. Milan.

Sculli half of registration rights was sold to Chievo in 2003 for a lump sum of €450K along with Paro and Gastaldello as part of the deal of Nicola Legrottaglie transfer.[1]

Juventus bought back all three in 2005 for a lump sum €1.05M, which Sculli signed a contract until summer 2008, and loaned him to Messina.

Genoa[edit]

In 2006, Juventus were relegated to Serie B, at which point Sculli made a return to the first team. He made a few appearances in friendly matches, but was loaned to newly promoted Serie B team Genoa on 24 August. In November 2006, he was suspended 8 months for accused of match-fixing when he played for F.C. Crotone against his current club F.C. Messina at the last match-day of the 2001–02 Serie B.[2] He was sold for €300,000.[3]

Lazio[edit]

Sculli was sold to Lazio on 19 January 2011 in co-ownership deal for a peppercorn fee of €500.[4][5][6] He would be carrying number 7 for his new club, becoming Lazio's first signing of the 2011 calendar year. He finished his first and second goals for Lazio during a comfortable win against Palermo on 6 March 2011.

In June 2011 Lazio bought him outright for €3 million.[4][5]
