Alfonso De Lucia (born 12 November 1983) is an Italian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper.



De Lucia was signed by Parma A.C. from S.S.C. Napoli, as part of the deal of Paolo Cannavaro.

De Lucia made his professional debut as a replacement for injured Cláudio Taffarel during a Serie A league game versus AC Milan on 30 March 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 13 July 2007 De Lucia moved to Livorno.[3] He played the 2007–08 season 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 Livorno signed Francesco Benussi and Rubinho as a backups for De Lucia. They played 16 games in Serie A.

De Lucia became the backup of Francesco Bardi in 2011–12 Serie B.

He was banned for 5 months in 2012 due to involvement in match-fixing scandal.[4]

In January 2013 he was loaned to Nocerina.

In June 2013 he was banned 6 months due to suing the chairman of Livorno without authorization.[5][6][7] In 2014 his contract with the club was terminated.


In January 2015 De Lucia was signed by Lega Pro struggler Monza.
