Lanzaro agreed a four-year contract with Genoa in July but the deal is off following the club's demotion to Serie C1.
Fortunately for Lanzaro, he has quickly found a new club after concurring on terms with Reggina for an undisclosed length of contract.
The Serie A club had been looking to strengthen their defence and Lanzaro fits the bill for the type of player coach Walter Mazzarri has been chasing.
Meanwhile, Reggina president Lillo Foti has hit back at criticism of his decision to sell Mozart (pictured) to Spartak Moscow.
Foti has been under fire for allowing the Brazilian midfielder to join the Russian giants but the Reggina supremo cannot understand the fuss.
"I live with certainties," said Foti. "In these last 10 days Reggina respected the targets decided in June.
"Mozart's sale isn't news. We said the operation would be finalised as soon as there would have been an interest for both sides and so it has been."
