Emanuele Filippini (born 3 July 1973) is an Italian retired footballer who played as a defensive midfielder.

He played in several teams with his twin brother, Antonio, and spent most of his career with Brescia, amassing Serie A totals of 175 games and six goals over the course of eight seasons.[1][2]

Football career[edit]

Born in Brescia, Filippini emerged through his hometown Brescia Calcio's youth system, and stayed there for eight professional seasons, after having started – on loan – with amateurs Ospitaletto, the first of many teams he shared with his sibling Antonio. The pair made their Serie A debut on 31 August 1997, in a 1–2 away loss against Inter Milan.[3]

After one-and-a-half seasons on loan to Parma AC, Filippini moved alongside Antonio to U.S. Città di Palermo.[4] He scored four goals in his short spell, to help the Sicilian side return to the top division after 31 years.

Filippini then hard three more solid campaigns, one each with S.S. Lazio, Treviso F.B.C. 1993[5] and Bologna F.C. 1909 (the first two with Antonio, the latter in the second division), before signing with A.S. Livorno Calcio in 2007. In his second season he appeared in only a handful of games – unlike his twin, which had joined the previous year – but helped the club in the successful promotion play-offs, after which he was released, at nearly 36, retiring shortly after.

In late January 2010, Brescia appointed Filippini as assistant coach of the Giovanissimi Nazionali youth team guided by Omar Danesi.[6] On 25 June 2012, it was announced that both brothers would join lowly FeralpiSalò as youth system coordinators.[7]
