Born in 2000, the youngster joined Lazio from Roma in the summer of 2017. Impressing in the youth ranks since then, Simone Inzaghi took note of his talent this season; as a result, he allowed the player to make his debut for the first team in the UEFA Europa League against Ligue 1 side Rennes (12/12/2019).

While Falbo has spent most of the 2019/20 season with the club’s Primavera side, due to the new rules being implemented with regards to substitutions and each team’s squad size (due to COVID-19), Inzaghi has decided to keep him with the first team until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Primarily deployed as a left wing-back, Falbo has made 19 appearances between the Primavera 1 and Coppa Primavera, where he has scored two goals and provided four assists.
