Giuseppe "Bepi" Pillon (born February 8, 1956 in Preganziolmarker, Province of Treviso) is an Italianmarker football manager.



Pillon moved his first footsteps into football with hometown team Pro Mogliano, before to join Juventus's youth ranks for three years. He then played mostly for Serie C1 and Serie C2 teams throughout his career, including a four-year spell at Padova and three seasons with Spezia. He spent his two last seasons as a player at Pro Mogliano.


Pillon started his coaching career in 1992 with amateur Interregionale team Salvarosa. He went on to become Bassano coach the next season before to join Treviso in 1994, leading them through three consecutive promotion from Interregionale to Serie B. In 1997 he left Treviso to accept an offer from Padova of Serie B in 1997, only to be sacked in a few weeks. This was followed by another unsuccessful spell at Genoa in 1998, before being appointed as Lumezzane boss during the 1999–2000 Serie C1 season. He returned to coach in the Serie B in 2000–01 as Pistoiese boss. In 2001–02 he led Ascoli to win the Serie C1 title, heading the bianconeri also in their successive Serie B campaign.

After starting the 2003–04 season without a job, he was appointed at the helm of Serie B team Bari on January 2004, leading the galletti out of the relegation zone. In the following season, he was appointed by his former team Treviso, leading them to an impressive season which ensured them a spot in the promotion playoffs. He was consequently appointed by Serie A team Chievo Verona for their 2005–06 campaign which ended in a very impressive sixth place; this was later elevated to third following the 2006 Serie A scandal events, meaning Chievo would have awarded a spot in the UEFA Champions League 2006-07 third qualifying round, which they however lost to Levski Sofia. A low start in their Serie A 2006–07 campaign then convinced the Chievo management to sack Pillon, replacing him with Luigi Del Neri.

During the summer of 2007, he was announced as new Treviso boss for their 2007–08 Serie B campaign in a third spell at the club for Pillon, with his brother Albino as assistant manager. This new experience however proved not to be as successful as it was initially expected, and Treviso found themselves in the bottom part of the table, escaping relegation in the final weeks of the season. On July 2008 Treviso announced to have agreed a mutual consent leave with Pillon.

On December 16, 2008 Pillon was announced as new head coach of Serie A relegation strugglers Reggina Calcio, being appointed as replacement for Nevio Orlandi, dismissed because of poor results with the amaranto. His tenure with Reggina however lasted just a month, being dismissed on January 29, 2009 due to poor results.

On November 2009 he was appointed head coach of Ascoli, a team he already coached from 2001 to 2003, replacing Alessandro Pane.
