Born in Gallarate, Piovaccari graduated from Pro Patria's youth setup, and made his debuts while on loan at Serie D side Castellettese. In the summer of 2003, he joined Internazionale, being assigned to the Primavera squad.
In 2004, Piovaccari was loaned to Vittoria, and scored ten goals for the club in Serie C1. In July 2005, he was loaned to Serie B's Treviso, but after the latter's promotion to Serie A due to Caso Genoa, he moved to San Marino Calcio in the third level, also in a temporary deal.
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.
Piovaccari scored in his debut for the club on 3 August 2009, netting the winner of a 3–2 win against Giulianova, for the campaign's Coppa Italia. He was the team top-scorer in the campaign, scoring 14 goals and appearing in 30 matches in the league, as the Giallorossi narrowly avoided relegation.
Piovaccari moved to Cittadella, also in the second level, on 31 August 2010 in a co-ownership deal for €120,000, while Paolo Rossi moved in the opposite direction. The club sold its flagship striker for the second successive year (Riccardo Meggiorini in 2010 and Matteo Ardemagni in 2011). Piovaccari was also top goalscorer in the 2010–11 campaign, scoring 23 league goals.
On 8 July 2011, Piovaccari moved to fellow league team side Sampdoria for €3.5 million in a four-year contract. After appearing sparingly, he moved to Brescia on 31 January 2012, on loan until June (along with Salvatore Foti) and with Juan Antonio and Andrea Magrassi moving in the opposite direction. During the 2012 financial year, Piovaccari also signed a new contract which last until 30 June 2016.
Steaua București (loan)
In July 2013, Piovaccari was loaned to Romanian club Steaua București in a season-long deal. He made his debut in the Romanian Supercup in a 3–0 win over Petrolul Ploiești, coming on as a substitute for Stefan Nikolić.
On 24 July, Piovaccari scored his first goal for Steaua, in a 2–1 second leg win against Vardar Skopje in the campaign's UEFA Champions League qualifiers. He scored 16 goals during the campaign, winning the Liga I and the Supercupa României.
On 19 August 2014, Piovaccari was loaned to Spanish side Eibar, newly promoted to La Liga. He made his debut for the club on 24 August, replacing Ander Capa in the dying minutes of a 1–0 home win against Real Sociedad. On 1 July 2015, Piovaccari was released by Sampdoria.
On 10 January 2018, Serie B club Ternana announced the signing of Piovaccari on a 6-month contract, with option to extent to further season. On 16 August 2018, Piovaccari returned to Córdoba after agreeing to a one-year contract.
