Juventus and loans
He returned to Juventus in 2006 due to the club's relegation to Serie B following their involvement in the 2006 Calciopoli Scandal; he was capped for the first time when first choice goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was red carded in the 24th minute against U.C. AlbinoLeffe, on 18 November 2006. Juventus won the 2006–07 Serie B title and obtained promotion to Serie A the following season.
Sampdoria and Parma
In June 2010, Sampdoria decided not to buy Rossi but sold Mirante to Parma. The Genoa club bought the remaining half of the player from Juventus for another €1.5M and sold him to Parma for €3.6M, despite also losing another one of its keepers, Luca Castellazzi, to Internazionale, and failing to sign shot-stopper Marco Storari from Milan, who had been on loan at the club.
Since 2009, Mirante was a regular in Parma's team, missing just 3 of 76 Serie A matches.
Mirante was signed by Bologna F.C. 1909 on a free transfer on 3 July 2015. He was the first choice of the team. On 19 July 2016 Mirante signed a new 3-year contract. However, at the start of 2016–17 season he was diagnosed with a heart problem and had to undergo testing which ruled him out indefinitely; on 31 August 2016 the club signed Alfred Gomis on loan from Torino as an emergency replacement. After missing the next two and a half months of the season, he was finally cleared to play in mid November. Mirante made his debut since his injury on 28 November against Atalanta B.C..
He was a member of Italy U-21 team in 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, as an unused substitute. He has not made his debut for Italy at U-20 or U-21 level, despite having been called up a total of six times.
