Biography[edit]

Born in Città di Castello, Umbria, Bianconi started his career at hometown club G.S.D. Madonna del Latte and then U.S. Tiferno Castello Calcio. (not to be confused with A.C. Castello Calcio S.S.D., the Tiferno before WWII[1])[2] He received a call-up to Umbria regional Allievi–Giovanissimi team for 2006 Coppa Nazionale Primavera, an event competed by the representative teams of Italian regions.[3][3][4] Bianconi then left for Sansovino. In 2006–07 season Bianconi was a member of Allievi Regionali U16 team and played the match against Empoli F.C., in a friendly event, 2007 Torneo Internazionale Colli Senesi.[5] Bianconi played for Sansovino U20 reserve in 2008 Torneo di Viareggio[6][7] as a member of its U17 team Allievi Nazionali.

Vicenza[edit]

On 1 September 2008 he was signed by Serie B club Vicenza, initially in temporary deal. Bianconi played 2 seasons in the reserve. He scored 10 goals in 2009–10 season as Vicenza reserve top-scorer.

Juventus[edit]

In July 2010 Bianconi was signed by Serie A club Juventus in a 5-year contract in a co-ownership deal. The club swapped Bianconi with Fausto Rossi.[8] Both players were valued €1 million at that time thus 50% registration rights worth €500,000.[9] He scored a hat-trick in 2011 Torneo di Viareggio, which he became the top-scorer of Juve in that tournament with only 3 goals. In July 2011 Bianconi returned to Vicenza.[10] Bianconi wore no.97 shirt.[11] However, after only 1 appearance in half-season for the first team (and 6 more for the reserve as one of the four born 1991 overage player), Bianconi left for Belgian club Visé,[12][13] wearing no.45 shirt. In August 2012, he was loaned to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione side U.S. Poggibonsi.[14] On 28 August 2013 Bianconi moved to Gavorrano.[15] He fail to score regularly with only 5 starts. He rarely played in the second half of season, after the club signed Simone Malatesta and Francesco Zizzari as forwards.

Vicenza return[edit]

On 20 June 2014 Vicenza bought back Bianconi for €600,000,[16] with Carlo Pinsoglio return to Turin on the same day, for €700,000.[16][17] He was awarded no.17 shirt.[18] Bianconi signed a 3-year deal.[16]

On 5 January 2015 he was signed by Savona in a temporary deal.[19][20]

On 22 July 2015 Bianconi was signed by Lucchese in a temporary deal, as part of the deal of Filip Raičević.[21]
