Career[edit]

Born in the Campo di Marte Florence neighbourhood, next to the local Artemio Franchi stadium,[1] Cellini started his career with Serie C2 team Prato, where he played until 2002 (except for a one-year loan at amateur team Fucecchio in 1999–2000).[2] In 2002, he moved to Montevarchi, another Tuscan Serie C2 club, where he spent two seasons. In 2004, he signed for Serie C1 team Foggia, and scored 12 goals in his season with the satanelli. He moved to ambitious side Perugia the next season, scoring 16 goals in 32 matches with the grifoni.

In the 2006 summer window, Cellini signed for Serie B minnows U.C. AlbinoLeffe, where he scored seven goals in his first season with the Lombardians.[3] In the following season, he proved to be a protagonist of his side's surprising season start, helping AlbinoLeffe to top the league table scoring 11 goals in the initial 14 matches, that season AlbinoLeffe finished 4th, the best result in recent seasons.

In January 2008, he extended his contract to 30 June 2010.[4]

In July 2010 he left for newly promoted side Varese, signed a reported 2-year contract,[5] which Varese also loaned their striker Matteo Momentè to AlbinoLeffe.

On 31 January 2011, he was swapped with Alemão of Vicenza.[6][7]
