Vieri was loaned to Ancona for 100 million lire (€51,646) in 2000–01 season[4] and again in 2001–02 season.[5] In 2002 Vieri joined Verona as part of the deal of Mauro Camoranesi. Vieri's 50% registration rights was valued 1 billion lire at that time (€516,457). In June 2003 Juventus bought back Vieri for €516,457 and bought Camoranesi outright for €5 million. In July 2003 Vieri left for S.S.C. Napoli for €500,000.[6] In June 2004 Juventus gave up the remaining 50% registration rights.[2][7]

In July 2012, he was released from Prato.[2]
