On 2 July 2012, Dodô joined Serie A side Roma. He made his debut on 28 October in a 2–3 loss against Udinese. He started the match and was later substituted for compatriot Marquinhos. He finished the season with 11 appearances.
Dodô found more first team football in the 2013–14 season, with first team left back Federico Balzaretti missing much of the season through injury. Dodô made 20 appearances in all competitions over the course of the season, helping Roma to a 2nd-place finish.
On 8 July 2014, it was announced that Dodô would be joining Serie A rivals Inter on a two-year loan for a fee of €1.2 million, with the sale clause for a fee of €7.8 millions which will be activated by Dodô's appearance in the senior team's official matches. He made his official debut with Inter on 20 August 2014 in first leg of Europa League play-off, where he scored the second goal of the 3–0 away win against Icelandic side Stjarnan. On 31 August, he debuted in Inter's first match of the 2014–15 Serie A away to Torino, playing 80 minutes at left back in a goalless draw before being substituted for Danilo D'Ambrosio.
Dodô and his Inter Milan teammate Juan Jesus were called up to the Brazil national football team for friendlies against Argentina and Japan in October 2014. They were both unused substitutes in the first match in Beijing, a 2–0 victory for the 2014 Superclásico de las Américas.
