Valerio Bacigalupo (12 March 1924 4 May 1949) was an Italian football goalkeeper from Vado Ligure, Savona. He started his career off with home province side Savona. After a brief spell at Genoa he moved to Torino where he won Serie A four times in a row. Bacigalupo came from a footballing family as his older brother Manlio Bacigalupo also played. Valerio earned a call up to the Italian national football team five times. He died in the Superga air disaster with most of the Il Grande Torino line-up. After his death, the club where he started his career at, Savona renamed their ground as Stadio Valerio Bacigalupo in his honour.
