Early career[edit]

After a loan spell at second division's Triestina Piovaccari returned to Treviso, now in a co-ownership deal. In July 2009, the free agent signed a two-year deal with Lega Pro Prima Divisione side Ravenna, after Treviso's bankruptcy, as a replacement to Pescara-bound Francesco Zizzari.[1]

During 2012 financial year Piovaccari also signed a new contract which last until 30 June 2016.[8]
