Nuciari started his playing career with Montevarchi, on loan from Ternana. After two seasons with Ternana, he signed for A.C. Milan where he served as backup goalkeeper, making 28 league appearances in six seasons, with 18 of them in his first season. After a season as first-choice keeper for Monza, he then signed for Sampdoria, where he was again a backup, behind Gianluca Pagliuca (1989–1994) and then Walter Zenga (1994–1995). He retired in 1995, and then obtained a coaching license. In October 2001 he was surprisingly appointed head coach of Serie B club Cagliari, but he lasted only two months before being sacked on December of the same year.
In 2003, his former Sampdoria teammate Roberto Mancini called him to work as goalkeeping coach of his club Lazio. Nuciari followed Mancini to Inter in 2004, and stayed at the club until 2008, when Mancini and his coaching staff were dismissed by the club. In 2010 work as goalkeeping coach for Fiorentina with Siniša Mihajlović.
Nuciari is the titular of an original record for Serie A, as player with the highest number of appearances on the bench (333). Despite this, he played only a total 17 Serie A matches throughout his career.
