Turone is a former sweeper and centre back. His career started in 1968 at Genoa, where he made more than 100 appearances in four seasons, scoring at least 9 goals. He transferred to Milan in 1972, playing 191 matches in six years, scoring twice. He then played for Catanzaro, Roma and Bologna. He retired in 1986 after spending three years in minor leagues. He was never called-up for Italy because the national team already had excellent sweepers.
Turone showed remarkable technical and dribbling skills as well as the ability to guide the defence since his early years. When he joined Milan, coach Nereo Rocco tried to deploy him as offensive side back to take advantage of his great temperament, dynamism and determination. The results though weren't good. He was still capable of pushing forwards, assisting his teammates and occasionally shots with good power. His mentor Arturo Silvestri thought that Turone would've been perfect in the defensive midfielder position as he possessed speed, strength and a fine shot. He ultimately acted as defender, showing good man marking skills as stopper, the ability to drive his team from the back as libero. He was nicknamed "Ramón" since he was a teenager because he played as inside forward and ran constantly like a madman. Therefore, his friends used a Spanish name as he reminded them of Francisco Lojacono.
