Brivio started his professional career at Atalanta.
Atalanta bought back all Brivio's ownership rights from Fiorentina during the summer of 2007 by blind auction for €516,000.
Vicenza and Lecce
On 7 August 2007, he was sold to Vicenza in another joint-ownership arrangement, as part of a deal that brought Simone Padoin back to Atalanta. 50% registration rights of Brivio was valued €900,000 at that time, while 50% rights of Padoin was valued for €1.9 million. On 4 January 2008 Vicenza acquired Brivio outright for another €750,000. On the same day Vicenza also acquired Zampagna for €1.9 million, as well as sold Padoin outright for €1.55 million. The overall transactions made Vicenza paid €100,000 cash in net, and the full registration rights of Padoin to Atalanta in order to acquire Brivio and Zampagna.
In summer 2008, Brivio played once in Serie B before loaned to Genoa C.F.C.. But after just played once in Serie A in December, he was back to Vicenza. In July 2010, he was signed by Serie A side Lecce in a co-ownership deal, for €750,000. As part of the deal, half of the registration rights of Alain Baclet was sold to Vicenza for €400,000, as well as the loan of Raffaele Schiavi, made Brivio's deal only involved €350,000 cash.
After helping Lecce survived from relegation in 2010–11 Serie A, Lecce bought the remain 50% registration rights for €750,000. Co-currently, Vicenza excised the option to sign Schiavi outright for the same price, made the deal a direct cashless swap.
On 6 July 2012, Brivio signed a contract with his first club Atalanta.
He was amongst the losing semi-finalists as Italy were defeated by the Netherlands in the 2005 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship, and took part in the Italian victory over Croatia in the Third Place Playoff. He was also a member of the Italian squad in the 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship. Brivio made his youth international debut in June 2003, the post season matches of U16 (born 1987) team.
