Giovanni Piccolomo (born 4 April 1994 in São Paulo), simply known as Giovanni, is a Brazilian footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Coritiba.

Career[edit]

Giovanni was on the squad of Corinthians in the 2012 Copa São Paulo de Futebol Júnior. He was also part of the squad who won the 2012 FIFA Club World Cup and 2013 Campeonato Paulista. Whilst under contract with Corinthians, he was loaned out several times. Firstly, to Ponte Preta in June 2013 for 2013 Campeonato Brasileiro Série B.[1] Then to Portuguesa in 2014 for 2014 Campeonato Paulista, where he stayed only two months before returning to Corinthians.[2] In 2015 he appeared at first for São Bento in 2015 Campeonato Paulista, and then for Athletico Paranaense in 2015 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A.[3][4] For the last 6 months of his Corinthians contract he was loaned to Tigres do Brasil and played in 2016 Campeonato Carioca.[5]

With his Corinthians contract over, Giovanni signed for a second time with São Bento in July 2016, agreeing a contract until the end of the 2016 Campeonato Brasileiro Série D.[6] He played in six of the second phase games, scoring twice, helping São Bento gained promotion and agreeing to stay at the club in 2017.[7]

In May 2017, Giovanni joined Náutico to play in 2017 Campeonato Brasileiro Série B.[8] After playing 21 times he asked for contract to be terminated. According to his manager this was due to personal problems, but Giovanni himself blamed lack of payment of wages.[9][10]

In December 2017 he signed for Goiás.[11] His 33 appearances and 5 goals helped the club win promotion from 2018 Campeonato Brasileiro Série B, but a new contract could not be agreed and he signed for Coritiba in January 2019.[12]
