Career[edit]

Reggina[edit]

Viola was born in Oppido Mamertina, in the same province of Reggina Calcio. Viola made his Serie A debut for Reggina on 11 January 2009 against S.S. Lazio. He also played twice at 2008–09 Coppa Italia.

Palermo[edit]

On 30 January 2012, Palermo announced to have purchased Viola from Reggina in a co-ownership agreement with the club, for €1.8 million in a 4½ year contract.[1] The player would stay on loan at Reggina until the end of the 2011–12 Serie B season.[2]

Ternana[edit]

On 1 July 2013 Ternana acquired Viola from Reggina, with Palermo retained the 50% registration rights.[3][4] In June 2015 the co-ownership deal expired, as Ternana did not purchase him from Palermo. However, Palermo also released Viola for free.[5]

Novara[edit]

On 2 August 2015 Viola was signed by Novara Calcio.[6]

Benevento[edit]

On 31 January 2017 Viola was signed by Benevento in a 2½-year contract.[7][8]
