Fabio Cudicini (born October 20, 1935) is an Italian former professional football (soccer) goalkeeper, who played from 1955 to 1973. With his 1.91 m (6 ft 3 in) he was one of the tallest goalkeepers of his time. He is also regarded as one of the best goalkeepers of his generation, and as one of Italy's best ever goalkeepers.
Born in Trieste, Cudicini frequently wore all-black goalkeeping attire, earning him the nickname Il Ragno Nero ('The Black Spider'), also due to his agility, reactions, and shot-stopping ability, as well as his tall and slender build and long limbs. Cudicini is mostly remembered for his highly successful and dominant stint with A.C. Milan, and he is one of the most celebrated goalkeepers in the club's history, helping them win the 1969 European Cup Final in particular.
Cudicini played for Milan from 1967–73, making 183 appearances, and achieving notable domestic and international success; with the club, he won the Cup Winners' Cup in 1968, the European Cup in 1969, and the Intercontinental Cup in 1969, as well as the Serie A in 1968, and the Coppa Italia in 1972. He had previously also played for Udinese (1955–58), Roma (1958–66) and Brescia (1966–67). With Roma he won a Coppa Italia in 1964, and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1960-61.
Despite his club achievements, Cudicini never played for the Italian national team, mainly because of the contemporary presence of several other notable players in his role such as Dino Zoff, Lorenzo Buffon and Enrico Albertosi.
