“Fiorentina Method” – A Proven Track Record

The “Fiorentina Method” has evolved over 25 years of collaboration between Pantaleo Corvino and Prof. Vincenzo Vergine, who is currently the Youth Director of Italian Serie A club ACF Fiorentina. They have developed players at the highest levels of Italian soccer, including Serie A and the Italian National team.


The principle aim of the methodology is the individual player’s development with a scientific approach. The curriculum for each age group addresses the physical and technical areas and the percentage of training hours dedicated to each, based on annual training hours. This plan includes a combination of individualized training and team training, with extensive work on psychomotor skills and coordination.
