Antonio Cassano, who has won the Serie A Young Footballer of the Year award twice

The Serie A Young Footballer of the Year (Italian: Migliore calciatore giovane) is an annual association football award. It is presented to the under-24 footballer who has been considered to have performed the best over the previous Serie A season. It is organized by the Italian Footballers' Association (AIC) and is part of the "Oscar del Calcio" awards event.

Antonio Cassano has won the award the most; he has won the award twice in 2001 and 2003. He is the only player to have won the award twice. Roma have had the most winners; three players from the club have won the award three times. The first non-Italian to win the award was Slovak Marek Hamšík in 2008. Luis Muriel and Stephan El Shaarawy are the recent recipients of the award. This also marks the first time that two players have simultaneously won the award together.
