Luca Toni has completed his move to Genoa after being snubbed by Bayern Munich, Roma and Italy in the past two months.
"I've received a great welcome," he said. "It's up to me to repay that faith on the field. Genoa play football which suit my characteristics."
The tall 33-year-old, a 2006 FIFA World Cup winner, fell out with the Bayern hierarchy last term and spent the second half of the season at Roma where his goals helped them run Inter close in the Serie A title race.
However, Roma decided not to sign him permanently and bought Adriano instead while Toni was also left out of Italy's World Cup squad for South Africa despite their clear lack of firepower.
