Francesco Dell'Anno (born June 4, 1967) is an Italian former footballer who played as an attacking midfielder.[1]

A gifted playmaker, Dell'Anno began his career at Lazio and made his debut in the 1984–85 season, and his emergence was one of the few highlights of a dismal season for the Biancocelesti. He moved on to Arezzo and Taranto before joining Udinese in 1990.

Dell'Anno spent three seasons with Udinese, earning considerable praise for his displays in midfield during this time. A move to Internazionale followed, but he was unable to command a regular place before moving to Salernitana. His career enjoyed a renaissance after a move to Ravenna, before ending his career at Ternana.

While playing for Lazio, he was engaged to the female Lazio footballer Eva Russo. The engagement broke off after four years.[2]
