Mauro Zironelli (born 21 January 1970 in Thiene) is an Italian professional football coach and a former player, who played as a midfielder. He is currently in charge as head coach of Modena in the Serie C league.
Zironelli started playing professionally with Vicenza in Serie C1. He then joined Fiorentina in 1989, with whom he also played in the 1990 UEFA Cup Final. This was followed by a number of seasons at Serie B and Serie C1 level with many other teams, including a comeback at Fiorentina in 1993. He also won a promotion to Serie A in 1998 with Venezia.
On June 2015, he took over from Diego Zanin at another Serie D club, Altovicentino, guiding them to second place at the end of the season. He successively accepted an offer from Mestre for the 2016–17 season, managing to win promotion to Lega Pro with the club. After a good Serie C season, he was subsequently hired by Bari in what turned out to be a short-lived experience with the Apulians; after going to the pre-season camp with the squad, he was released together with all the players following the club's exclusion from professional football due to financial debts.
Later in August 2018, he was unveiled as the inaugural head coach of Juventus U23 after it was admitted in the Serie C as the very first reserve team to ever take part to the professional leagues of Italy. He left the club on 24 May 2019 after completing the Serie C season with the club.
