An Internazionale youth system product, Calloni then moved to Varese and then on loan to Serie C club Verbania. He returned at Varese in 1972, scoring 23 goals in two Serie B seasons, being noted by A.C. Milan. Signed by the rossoneri in 1974, he played four seasons with A.C. Milan as a regular, scoring 31 goals in 101 matches. He became however famous for his several striking mistakes which brought popular journalist Gianni Brera to nickname him "sciagurato Egidio" (Egidio the wretched), after a minor character from Alessandro Manzoni's novel The Betrothed.
He then played with little success with several other Serie A teams, such as Verona and Perugia, being a backup for Paolo Rossi in the latter. He then moved to Serie B club Palermo, scoring 11 goals in 29 matches (including a single match in the 1981–82 season) and being the rosanero topscorer in 1980–81. He then returned to play at Serie A level with Como, failing however to impress, being featured only eight times, and scoring two goals. He retired in 1982, aged 30.
