Davide Sinigaglia (born 29 July 1981) is an Italian footballer who plays for Grosseto.
Sinigaglia had made over 200 games in Lega Pro but only a handful of games in Serie A and Serie B.
Sinigaglia was a youth product of Internazionale. He played his first Serie A match on 7 February 1999, Inter 5–1 Empoli. He was a substitute of Nicola Ventola. Coach Mircea Lucescu never used Sinigaglia again due to his young age.
Sinigaglia was jointly contracted with Ternana and Inter from 2001–02 season until June 2003; Ternana bought Sinigaglia and Cristian Lizzori outright from Inter for a peppercorn of €500 each that month. Ternana bought half of Sinigaglia and Lizzori for a total of 1 billion lire (€516,457) in July 2001 and June 2002 respectively.
Sinigaglia were loaned to Serie C1 and Serie C2 teams during his whole contract with Ternana, namely Veneto club Padova and Lombard club Monza. Sinigaglia was then joint owned by Ternana and Lumezzane. Sinigaglia scored his career high of 15 goals for the Lombard club in 2003–04 Serie C1. In June 2004 the co-ownership was renewed. On 31 August 2004 he was signed by Arezzo outright, from both Lumezzane and Ternana.
He played his first ever Serie B season for Arezzo in 11 games, before moving on loan to Atalanta of Serie A in January 2005 as a player to avoid fall back to the second division. He was then loaned by Genoa in 2005, to help the club to win promotion back to Serie B. He was called back in January 2006, for a chance to get the ticket of promotion playoff to Serie A for Arezzo, but failed.
In summer 2006, he was moved to Padova of Serie C1, and one year later for another in the same level, Novara on 11 July 2007.
Sinigaglia made 56 appearances in the third tier for Novara. Both seasons the club failed to win major trophy nor promotion to the second division.
In 2009 he was swapped with Simone Motta of Cesena, the newcomer of Serie B. Sinigaglia was valued €500,000 and Motta for €720,000 (thus only €220,000 cash was involved). Sinigaglia signed a 2-year contract. In his third Serie B season, he only scored once in 7 games. In January 2010 Sinigaglia was loaned to Lanciano of the third tier. Lanciano finished as the ninth of group B. In the same month Cesena promoted to Serie A as the runner-up. Sinigaglia did not have any chance in 2010–11 Serie A, his fourth Serie A season.
On January 2011 he was transferred to Ternana for free. After winning promotion to Serie B, the contract was extended along with forward Raffaele Nolè.
On 2 September 2013 Sinigaglia was signed by Monza. In August 2013 Sinigaglia also acquired the license to become a youth team coach.
On 2 August 2014 Sinigaglia was signed by Reggiana in a 2-year contract. On 2 February 2015 he was signed by Giana Erminio in a temporary deal.
Sinigaglia was signed by Pistoiese on 31 August 2015, in a definitive deal from Reggiana.
On 9 September 2016 Sinigaglia was signed by Serie D club Grosseto.
