Lazio[edit]

Berni left for Lazio in summer 2006 as Ternana relegated to Serie C1.

Since Juan Pablo Carrizo was signed by Lazio in June 2008, Berni was loaned to Salernitana of Serie B to seek first team experience in February 2009. Since arrived at Salernitana, he put Salvatore Pinna to the bench.
