Alfonso De Lucia (born 12 November 1983 in Nola, Naples) is an Italian association football goalkeeper, currently playing with A.S. Livorno Calcio.

Career[edit]

De Lucia made his professional debut as a replacement for injured Cláudio Taffarel during a Serie A league game versus AC Milan on March 30, 2002, at the age of 18. The following season De Lucia did not make any appearance, being later loaned out to Serie B side Salernitana for the 2003–04 season. After his return to Parma in July 2004, he served as a reserve for veteran keeper Luca Bucci, also managing to play 17 more games in three seasons.

On July 2007 De Lucia moved to Livorno in a part exchange bid with Stefano Morrone. He played the 2007–08 again as a reserve, this time behind Italian international Marco Amelia. After Livorno's relegation to Serie B which persuaded Amelia to leave the club, De Lucia was promoted as first-choice goalkeeper, and served as a regular in the 2008–09 campaign that ended in a prompt return to the top flight as playoff winners.

In 2009–10 season, Livorno signed Claudio Bellucci to back De Lucia.
