Biography[edit]

Born in Vittorio Veneto, the Province of Treviso, Martina started his career at Treviso. In his last year with Treviso's under-20 youth team, he also played 3 Serie B games. In the first game he replaced Gianni Guigou in the 63rd minute on 8 October 2006, drawing 0–0 with Piacenza.[1] In July 2007 he was loaned to Pizzighettone along with Eros Bagnara.[2] On 1 July 2008 Martina returned to Treviso but only played 2 times in Serie B, which the team relegated and then bankrupted.

On 5 August 2009 he joined Bassano on free transfer.[3] He played a career high of 13 games, and in June his contract was extended.[4] That season despite finished seventh in the Group B of 2009–10 Lega Pro Seconda Divisione, the team promoted to Prima Divisione to fill the vacancies by the bankrupted teams. He only played 4 times in his maiden Prima Divisione season before moved to fellow Prima Divisione team Viareggio (but from another group, Group B), in exchange with forward Cristian Longobardi.[5][6] he was the understudy of Nicolò Brighenti; just played four times: started once as right-back (but sent off at first half),[7] replacing centre-back Lorenzo Fiale once and left-back Davide Bertolucci twice respectively.
