Bought in 1941, he arrived in Torino just at the end of the II world war. He played in the middle of the midfield, but in the System (WM) his role made him a forerunner Stopper.
Rigamonti was the corner-stone of the Torino defence, taking on the role of stopper before it became a common position. He was a solid, stubborn defender, who earned the nickname ‘the Rock’.
Defender strong and ostinate, good shooter, he was the sever mastiff of the penalty area, exalthed himself in the battle. A very Carlos Puyol type defender constantly harassing the centreforward. He preferred to anticipate the CF: he didn't like useless refinements. Rigamonti was indispensable for the concretness of disengangement. A garancy in the pitch.

A basic point in the defense of Grande Torino, less refinate than Maroso, more similar to Ballarin. One of the player with a more constant performance, capable of played each match with the maxim concentration in an infernal rithm. Often Bacigalupo helped him in defense calling his attention.
Mario was strong in the air, showed a good ability to read the game and was an exuberant character off the pitch. Brescia renamed their stadium in his honour and the Serie B club now play their home games at the ‘Stadio Mario Rigamonti"

With Grande Torino recorded 140 caps and 1 goal.
