Barbesino was a midfielder who could play either as half-back or inside. He played 83 matches and scored 11 goals for Casale from 1911 to 1920, winning the historical 1913-14 Italian championship. He was named captain of the team and debuted with Italy − he's the first ever player from Casale who played for the national team − at very young age, gaining a total of 5 caps and scoring once. He played also for Legnano in 1917-18. Also an aviator, he died in 1941 in a plane accident and his body was never found.
Barbesino was a versatile midfielder, extremely able with the head, gifted with great technique, in perfect harmony with the aggressive playstyle of Casale and symbol of that squad. He was a guide an authentic captain, a coach in the field who drove the team with a spirit of unselfishness and bravery, the first to enter the pitch and the last to leave it. Tall but thin, with thick wavy blonde hair, he gave his opponents the impression of a fragile man they could break in half in a physical duel. Unfortunately for them, most of the times they were the ones who got put down. He was able at holding up the first back line and intercept the balls with quickness and promptness, then giving the input to start an offensive action with a through pass. He was dynamic and had good speed but maybe wasn't too agile: in a Prima Categoria match in particular, he was dribbled multiple times apparently quite easily. He wasn't a bad shooter either: his only goal for Italy came against Switzerland, when he made his own way among a group of defenders and delivered on goal a shot with good power.
