Gandini was a striker and midfielder who, after a season at Valenzana in 1920-21, played his career at Alessandria between 1921 and 1932 counting 236 matches and 17 goals. He also capped for Italy 6 times between 1925 and 1928. He was a player with determination and a solid, rough playstyle; a tenacious fighter and captain with good feet. During his career he played many positions: he started as inside forward before being moved to the left wing in 1923 and transformed in a defensive midfielder in 1924. While being a striker he showed outstanding physical qualities and an impetuous agonism. When he became a midfielder he showed to have not only the clean touch of a striker but also the attitude of a great leader. Because of his leadership, enthusiasm and charisma he was nicknamed "il Duce" since he played during the Fascist period. He said about himself: "I played with passion. Football was so much an amusement for me that I didn't feel any fatigue".
