Emerson next joined Nuorese of Eccellenza Sardinia. He won twice promotion for the Sardinian side, which followed the team promoted to Serie C2 in 2006, which also made Emerson registered as professional players and able to sign by any Italian professional clubs, as FIGC only forbidden clubs signing non–EU players from abroad and from amateur league, except Serie A clubs had 1 conditional quota (for replacing non-EU players that sold abroad or released). Emerson was benefited to the clause that Serie D clubs which promoted to Serie C2 can hire their amateur non–EU players in previous season as professional players. Emerson then scored 9 league goals for Nuorese in professional league in 1½ seasons before left the club in January 2008.
In January 2008, Emerson was transferred to Serie C1 side Taranto Sport in co-ownership deal. He made 11 appearances in the Italian 3rd highest level, and Taranto bought him outright by made higher bid in a closed tender between the 2 clubs.
But in July 2008, he was loaned to Lumezzane of Prima Divisione Group A from Taranto (Group B), which became a co-ownership deal later. He was the regular starter of the team, and scored 5 goals in 2009–10 Lega Pro Prima Divisione.
On 25 June 2010, Lumezzane failed to agree a price for the remain 50% registration rights, thus the clubs submitted their bid in envelope to buy the rights from the opposite side (i.e. a closed tender). On 30 June, the envelopes opened in Lega Pro headquarter, and Lumezzane made a higher bid to buy Emerson outright.
