After spending years coaching the youth teams of two clubs in Perugia, and two more in Bologna, Buscaglia was offered the head coach role for the 1996–97 season, with Piove di Sacco. For the 2001–02 season, he began as the assistant coach of Bears Mestre in the Serie B (Italian 3rd Division), and later he was named the head coach of the team.

In 2003, he was signed by Aquila Trento, of Serie C1 (Italian 4th Division), where he stayed until 2007, and achieved a league promotion to Serie B in 2005.

He later went back to Mestre, and then Perugia Basket, achieving many league promotions.

In 2010, he again became the head coach of Aquila Trento. In that following season, he achieved the league promotion to the Serie A2 (Italian 2nd Division). In the 2013–14 season, he won the Italian LNP Cup (2nd tier Italian Cup) and, in the same year, he achieved a league promotion to the Italian top-tier level LBA for the first time.

At the end of the 2014–15 Serie A season, his team finished the regular season in fourth place, and he was named the Italian League's Coach of the Year.[1]
