Paolucci progressed through the ranks at Juve but never played for their first team and left in 2006, first on loan to Ascoli before moving to Udinese in a co-ownership deal with the Turin outfit the following term.
"I have great memories here," he told Juventus Channel. "Coming into the city was immediately wonderful and I even found it better than how I left it.
"It would be nice also because in the many years which I spent here I never had the chance to make my debut with the first team.
"When I left here I was little more than a boy. Now I have several years of Serie A and several matches under my belt.
"I think the experience around Italy helped me to be more ready and motivated."
