Italian international prop, Pietro Ceccarelli, joined the club from French Top 14 side Oyonnax Rugby in April 2018.
The prop started his career with Rome-based Lazio Rugby Club before securing a move to French side La Rochelle in 2012. Following a brief spell with Federal 2 team AS Macon, the prop returned to his native Italy to sign for Guinness PRO14 outfit Zebre in 2015. In two seasons at the Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi Ceccar, Ceccarelli made 46 appearances before moving to Oyonnax Rugby at the start of the 2017/18 season.
Ceccarelli made his Edinburgh debut away to former club Zebre in October 2018 before enjoying a run of games in the capital side's matchday 23 during the hectic Autumn international period.
Ceccarelli made his Italian Test debut against Ireland in the 2016 Six Nations and featured against Scotland during the Azzuri’s 34-15 Summer Test defeat in Singapore in June 2017.
