Logo used in 2011–12 season

The team was founded in 1919 as the merger of two pre-existing companies, the Ausonia and the Bandiera, both from Piacenza and playing in occasional amateur activity.

Since its founding, Pro Piacenza adopted mesh with vertical stripes red-black, although in the early years they also often used green shirts, because they were more readily available.

Pro Piacenza have always participated in the amateur leagues, without ever being able to reach professionals, but in the summer of 2013, thanks to the merger with the Atletico BP Pro Piacenza, based in Bettola, they participated in the Serie D and changed the name in A.S.D Pro Piacenza 1919[1]

On April 17, 2014, after beating Sambonifacese 2–0 at home, the club gained promotion to Lega Pro, winning the Group B of the 2013–14 Serie D season. For the first time in 95 years the team played professional football.[2]

In summer 2014 the club was again renamed to A.S. Pro Piacenza 1919 S.r.l..[3]

For having played an illegitimate player, they were penalized 8 points at the beginning of the new season on third level.[4]
