Early career[edit]

After two seasons with amateur side Boca San Lazzaro, Bazzani moved to Serie C2 club Sandonà. In 1997, he was in Serie B team Venezia, but played only twice in the season. He moved to Varese and then Arezzo, where he made an impression scoring 20 goals in 31 matches under the management of Serse Cosmi. In 2000, he returned to Venezia, but scored only five goals in 36 matches. In 2001, he rejoined his former coach Cosmi when he signed with Serie A side Perugia, where he scored ten goals.

He was loaned to Lazio in exchange for Simone Inzaghi in January 2005, but failed to impress with the biancazzurri and returned to Sampdoria at the end of the season.
