He suffered an injury to his artery in the incident, which took place in the early hours of this morning and left nine other Spurs supporters injured.
The group - which included nine British and one American - was outside a pub near the city centre when they were attacked.
A number of Italians involved in the fight were detained, a police spokesman added.
