Olivieri was born in San Michele Extra, Verona.

Nicknamed Ercolino Semprimpiedi ("Always-Standing Little Hercules"), a famous definition of Italian journalist Gianni Brera, he played for Hellas Verona, Lucchese, and Brescia in Serie B, and Torino in Serie A.[1]

With the Italy national football team he became World Champion in 1938. Known in particular for his reflexes, athleticism, and intelligence throughout his career, he is regarded as one of Italy's greatest goalkeepers.[2]

He died in Lido di Camaiore at 90 years old. He was the penultimate survivor of the 1938 winning team squad. The last member, who died on 5 November 2006, was defender Pietro Rava.
