Amedeo Amadei Italian pronunciation: [ameˈdɛo amaˈdɛi] (26 July 1921 – 24 November 2013) was a professional Italian football player. He played as a striker. Following his retirement, he worked as a coach. Following his death in 2013, he was one of eleven members to be inducted into the A.S. Roma Hall of Fame. Due to his importance to Roma throughout his career, he was affectionately known by the fans as the "eighth King of Rome".
He was born in Frascati, near Rome, the son of a baker. He made his professional debut on 2 May 1937 with A.S. Roma at age 15, 9 months and 6 days (the youngest debut in Serie A history). A week later he scored in a 5–1 defeat to A.S. Lucchese Libertas 1905 making him the youngest scorer in Serie A history, a record he holds to this day. He also played in Serie B with Atalanta B.C., Inter and S.S.C. Napoli. He won one Italian title with Roma in the 1941–42 season; this was the club's first ever championship. With A.S. Roma he played 386 matches and scored 101 goals; in his entire career he played 423 matches and scored 174 goals.
