Club career[edit]

After a loan spell in Serie C1 team Sambenedettese, his first club Atalanta sold him to Cagliari Calcio in co-ownership deal. He earned a permanent move to Cagliari on summer 2006 and spent a seven-year spell playing 176 league matches at the team until the 2011–12 season.

On 12 July 2012, Canini joined Genoa C.F.C. on a four-year deal for €2.9 million.[1] He returned to former club Atalanta in January 2013, after a swap with Thomas Manfredini.

He played in 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, and 2006 and 2007 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship.
