Roberto "Pippo" Filippi (born 30 July 1948), also known as Pippo Filippi, is an Italian former professional footballer and manager who played as a midfielder.


Roberto Filippi was the second player to win the Guerin d'Oro two times in a row (1978 and 1979), awarded to the player with the highest average rating in a single Serie A season.


Roberto Filippi played in Serie A with Bologna, Lanerossi Vicenza, Napoli and Cesena.


Despite his ability and performances at club level, Filippi was never capped for the Italy national football team, and is considered one of Italy's greatest players to have never appeared for the national side.

Style of play

A highly recognisable player, due to his trademark long haircut, Filippi was a small yet energetic midfielder with a light, slender build, but who was known for his consistency, as well as his outstanding stamina, tireless runs in midfield, and work-rate, which enabled him to cover the pitch effectively. He usually played as a central or defensive midfielder, where he functioned as a ball-winner, although he also possessed good feet in spite of his playing role.

Management career

Filippi managed Treviso, Pro Gorizia, Luparense, Piovese, Thermal Abano, and Campodarsego.
