Born in Massa, Tuscany, Evani played in Serie A 353 times with 16 goals. Promoted by the AC Milan youth academy who developed him into a left-sided skillful midfielder, he was not gifted with great pace or the ability to wizard his way past defenders, but his dependable qualities proved vital to the AC Milan senior team, especially during Arrigo Sacchi's reign, as well as under Fabio Capello. Due to his tactical intelligence and versatility, positioning, and work-rate, he was also capable of playing as a fullback for his club, as he did earlier in his career, and as a central midfielder, although his technique, distribution, crossing ability, and his tendency to make attacking runs enabled him to excel on the left wing. Evani was also an accurate set-piece taker, and possessed a powerful shot.[1][2]

Evani was handed his debut at the age of 18 in 1981, going on to wear the Rossoneri shirt for the next 13 years. His honours while at AC Milan included two promotions from Serie B, three Serie A titles, two European Cups, two Italian Super Cups, two European Super Cups and two Intercontinental Cups, scoring the winner against Atlético Nacional in their 1989 triumph, winning the "Man of the Match Award". He left AC Milan in 1993 to join Sampdoria, the club with which he won the Coppa Italia in 1994, staying there for four years until moving to Serie B side Reggiana in 1997, and ending his career at Carrarese in 1998, in Serie C1.[1][2]


Evani had represented the Italy under-21 side, and the Italy under-23 side at the 1988 Olympics, where they reached the semi-finals, finishing in fourth place. When Sacchi was appointed as Italy coach, Evani became regular member of the Italian national side; in total he made 15 appearances for Italy. He made his debut for Italy on the 21 December 1991 in a 2-0 win over Cyprus. He subsequently represented his country at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, appearing in Italy's opening defeat to Ireland, and scoring a penalty kick in the shootout loss to Brazil in the final.[1][3]


After his retirement, Evani returned AC Milan, serving as youth team coach for the Allievi Nazionali (16- to 17-year-old players), being crowned as national champions in 2007, then starting undertaking coaching qualifications.[1] On June 2009 he was announced as new head coach of Lega Pro Seconda Divisione club San Marino.[4] He was removed from his coaching post on April 2010 despite being in second place with his team, citing internal problems within the team and difficult relationships with the board as the main reasons for his dismissal.[5]

On August 2010 he was appointed head coach of the Italy Under-18 team.[1]
