Valiani joined Rimini along with Emmanuel Cascione. Valiani spent two-and-a-half seasons in Serie B with the club.
His final game (and goal) for Rimini was on 2008-01-26 and, ironically, against the team he would join the next week. Bologna won the match 2–1.
Valiani joined Bologna in January 2008 for €2.5 million and helped them to promotion.
On 31 August 2008 he made his Serie A debut by scoring the winning goal in a shocking 2–1 win for Bologna at San Siro against AC Milan.
On 29 January 2010 Parma signed the midfielder from Bologna in return for winger Andrea Pisanu on joint ownership deals, both 50% registration rights of the players were tagged for €2.5 million. Valiani signed a 3½ year contract.
With Parma, he often featured as one of the 3 central midfielder in 3–5–2 formation, or one of the midfielder in 4–3–3 formation. On 17 October 2010, he unusually became a wingforward in the 4–3–3 formation. He generally represented the club on the right-hand side of midfield in Franco Colomba's 4–4–2 formation towards the end of the 2010–11 season and was the outfield player with the most appearances over the seasons, playing in all but three matches.
In June 2011 Parma acquired Valiani outright and co-currently Andrea Pisanu jointed Bologna outright. Co-currently Alessandro Elia and Riccardo Pasi returned to their mother club.
Elia was valued an aggressive price of €1.5 million While Pasi's 50% rights was valued an aggressive price of €1.6 million; Valiani cost Parma €2.8 million and co-currently Parma sold Andrea Pisanu outright for €2.5 million. The four deals made Bologna received €200,000 in net.
On 14 July 2012, Parma sold Valiani outright to fellow Serie A club Siena for just €100,000. In June and July 2012 Siena and Parma also made cash-less players only swap, namely: Brandão, Iacobucci, Pacini and Rossi of Siena for a total of €5.6 million; Coppola, Dellafiore, Doumbia and Galuppo of Parma also for a total of €5.6 million.
