Potenza spent season 2021/22 with Marsa in the Challenge League while last season, he joined Santa Lucia in November, leading them to secure their Premier League status.
Before moving to Malta, he led Puteolana, Arzanese, Albanova and Turris in Italy.
Valletta are currently eighth with five points from four matches following a win over Sirens, a defeat to Sliema and back-to-back draws with Birkirkara and Mosta.
