Baronio spent last season on loan with Perugia but was heavily criticised by its president Luciano Gaucci for being a negative player in his side, thus seeing little action with the club last term.
It was thought the player would move to another club during January's transfer window, with Napoli and Torino seemingly interested, but a deal never materialised.
Baronio will now have a opportunity to put his career back on track this coming season with The Flying Donkeys, as Chievo continue their run as a Serie A club.
Meanwhile, striker Bernardo Corradi has extended his deal with the Biancoceleste until 2008.
Corradi was linked with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico but those rumours were put to rest when he put pen-to-paper following training on Friday.
The hit-man was pleased to stay with the Roman outfit and flattered by the interest of other clubs in the wanting of his services.
"I had been pleased by the compliments and the interests of other teams and other coaches, but I've never said that I wanted to leave Lazio," said Corradi.
"Here (at Lazio) I feel good, the team play in a good way and then there is a coach who gives me a lot of faith.
"I'm very satisfied with signing and with the contract extension.
"I'll stay here until 2008. The misunderstandings have been completely overcome.
"This year we will be competitive too. A squad like this one with a coach like Roberto Mancini will do big things."
