Varese was a left-inside. His career began in 1909 at Casale, where he stayed for six seasons, scoring 37 goals in 83 matches. Thanks to his 23 goals in 29 games during the legendary 1913-14 Italian championship, he was a key player for the Casale squad that won the title. Between 1919 and 1921 he played for Milan and in the first season he scored − like he did in the title winning season − 23 goals but this time in only 18 matches. The second season with the Rossoneri wasn't though as much successful. He capped 5 times for Italy and holds the record for the fastest goal in the history of Italian football, when he scored after only five seconds.
Not too constantly prolific, Varese was considered though a true bomber − proved by the two aforementioned seasons. He was energic and gifted with a limitless will. He preferred using mainly the left foot. From the reports of the 1910s, he seemed to be very aggressive, constantly running at good pace towards the goal. It seems that he liked to move to the flank, looking for a cross or a challenge with a defender. This second situation sometimes resulted in Varese gaining a corner. He tried the shot many times, missing most of them, especially the easiest ones. When he played for Italy, he wasn't as effective as he was with Casale: in a match against France, he was often offside; in one against Austria, he stubbornly tried powerful long rangers from even 30 meters without though being enough dangerous; in a first game against Switzerland, he sent easy goals over the bar. The cause of this was probably the rashness he sometimes had, not only with the national team but also with the club. What he always did well though was proving to be a superb passer of the ball and assist-man. He had a great partner in Giovanni Gallina since the two continuously exchanged passes throughout the match, either when playing for Casale or Italy. His crosses in particular were incredibly threatening for the opponents: in the second encounter with Switzerland, he took a corner and delivered a perfect cross for a teammate who scored; during an Italian championship match, a wonderful goal − acclaimed by the attendance − came out from a powerful cross; in the 1913-14 Prima Categoria final against Lazio, he scored the second and definitive goal of the match − arguably the most important of his career − directly from corner kick.
