Rizzo began his career in Cosenza with whom he won the Serie C 1960-61. Then wore the jerseys dell'Alessandria and Cagliari in Serie B in 1963-64 Rizzo was part of the team that won the first, historic promotion to Serie A the Sardinians. In 1968 he moved to Fiorentina with whom he won the Scudetto 1968-69. After two seasons he was transferred to Bologna, where he played until 1972, then donned the jerseys of Catanzaro, and after a short period at Cesena, Genoa, with whom he won the Serie B in 1975-76 and where he closed his career in 1979 , thirty-six years.

The June 14, 1966 became the first player to wear the blue shirt Calabrian debut in the National in Bologna, Italy-Bulgaria 6-1 race where he scored two goals.
