Former Italian player mostly known for his time at AC Milan. Carlo was strong player with good heading abilities. But he was most rememberd for his ferocious shooting and being a great set piece taker. He liked to join the attack, usually starting it with long balls and than moving forward, following the action. Determined and reliable player, good example of modern midfielder even in 50's. He tied for most career his name to that of Milan, by whose shirt he began immediately after the war. Made his way to the National Team in the meantime, debuted with the jersey No. 4 in the game against Czechoslovakia on Dec. 14, 1947 alongside some of the Grande Torino players. Remained within the national team until 1952, when, after 17 appearances, the last of them as captain, gave way to two other great central midfielders of the fifties, Giacomo Mari and Sergio Cervato. He also represented the Italian national side at the 1950 FIFA World Cup. In the championship was one of the stars of the 1951 championship, in which the title returned to Milan after 44 years of waiting: Annovazzi that season scored 16 goals (8 of them from a penalty kick). In 1953 Annovazzi came to Atalanta, with whom he played in the top flight until 1958. Ended his career as a footballer, he devoted himself to the coaching, especially youth teams. Shortly before his untimely death at only 55 years had the opportunity to have among his ranks the young Franco Baresi.
