Andrea Pirlo, Gabriel Batistuta and Thiago Motta are among the ex-pros who have completed an FIGC coaching course, with a final exam set for September.
The Italian Federation offers a special course for former footballers, combining the UEFA A and B licences.
The course is hosted at Coverciano, and the players began their coaching education at the beginning of June.
The 10 students will now take their final exams in September, and if they pass they will be able to coach youth teams, and any senior team up to Serie C.
