Antonio Cassano, who has won the Serie A Young Footballer of the Year award twice

The Serie A Young Footballer of the Year (Italian: Migliore calciatore giovane) was a yearly award organized by the Italian Footballers' Association (AIC) given to the footballer to the under-24 footballer who has been considered to have performed the best over the previous Serie A season. It was organised by the Italian Footballers' Association (AIC) and is part of the Oscar del Calcio awards event.

Antonio Cassano is the only multiple winner of the award, winning it in 2001 and 2003. Roma had the most winners with three players from the club winning the award three times. The first non-Italian to win the award was the Slovak Marek Hamšík in 2008.
