Simone Pianigiani

Simone Pianigiani was born in Siena on May 31, 1969.

Simone Pianigiani is percentually the most winning coach in Italian basketball history. The numbers from his first five years as head coach of Montepaschi Mens Sana say so. He won five national titles in 2006/2007, 2007/2008, 2008/2009, 2009/2010, 2010/2011 – results never before seen from a new coach – with an astounding ratio of games played (209, play off inclided)  and game won (191) for an average of 91.39%.
Along with his other accomplishments as head coach are five Supercoppa Italiana (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011), three Coppa Italia (2009, 2010 and 2011) and two Euroleague Final Four participations (2008 in Madrid and 2011 in Barcellona).
Having developed his skills in Mens Sana’s youth sector, with whom he won five National Titles (Cadetti in 2002 and 2003, Under 20 Open in 2004 and Juniores Eccellenza in 2004 and 2005), he covered the role of vice coach from 1995 to 2006. That job afforded him the opportunity to work with Cesare Pancotto, Phil Melillo, Luca Dalmonte, Edoardo Rusconi, Fabrizio Frates, Ergin Ataman and Carlo Recalcati.
During these years, he’s shined with Mens Sana Basket by winning their first National Title (2003/2004), two Euroleague Final Fours (2003 in Barcelona, 2004 in Tel Aviv), a Coppa Saporta (2002) and a Supercoppa Italiana (2004).

In December 2009, he’s named head coach of the Italian Men’s’ Nationals.

His career and the results he has achieved have been studied by instructors at various Italian universities, who’ve closely followed his practice methods to develop theses and lessons on coaching.
