He was formed as a player by the Torino youth sector with a brief spell at Avellino. He won a "Primavera" Coppa Italia in 1992 and he scored a goal in Torino's 4-3 aggregate win over Reggiana (Christian Vieri got the other three)


In the 1992-‘93 season he made his debut in Serie A with the "Granata". Manager Emiliano Mondonico played him in "Toro's" 3-1 win over Pescara on February 28, 1993. That unfortunately would be his only game for Torino but he won silverware as Torino won the Coppa Italia (beating Roma on goal difference, 5-5 on aggregate).


In 1993 he joined Monza for a season in Serie B. The "Brianzoli" were relegated first under Giovanni Trainini (1-1) and then Nedo Sonetti (12-38). Della Morte played 16 league games.


In 1994 he moved to Lazio in Serie A who had just signed Zdenek Zeman as their new manager. Della Morte faced harsh competition in midfield and in fact only played in a few summer friendlies before being loaned to Lecce in Serie B but the Salentini were relegated. He played 20 games under two future Lazio connections, Luciano Spinosi and Edy Reja and then Piero Lenzi. He also scored his first professional goal, a winner versus Ascoli.


In 1995 he returned to Lazio but was loaned out again this time to Avellino in Serie B. For a third time his club was relegated and he played 19 games for the "Irpini". He played under three managers Zbigniew Boniek (1-4), Claudio Orrico (5-19), Bruno Pace (20-38).


For the next seven seasons Della Morte changed team every year; Alessandria (C1- 26 games, 3 goals), Reggiana (B-24 games, 1 goal), Fidelis Andria (B-17 games, 1 goal), Reggiana again (C1-18 games, 1 goal), Lucchese (C1-28 games, 3 goals), Vicenza (B-28 games, 1 goal) and Chievo (A-24 games, 4 goals vs Perugia, a winner against Lazio…, Piacenza, Bologna).


Between 2003 and 2005 he finally stayed two seasons with the same club, Genoa. He played 19 games in Serie B but at the end of the second the "Grifone" was relegated.


In 2006 he joined Cesena in Serie B. He played 10 games before leaving for Ascoli during the season and playing 3 last games in Serie A but the "Picchio" (The Woodpecker) was relegated.


In 2006-07 he played one last season with Alessandria in Serie D, making 18 appearances with 5 goals.


In his youth he was considered a promising player and won Italy caps; 3 for the U17's, 8 for the U18's and 2 for the U21's.


Since retiring he has worked at youth level for Canavese, Juventus and is currently with Torino U15's.


Della Morte had a mediocre career considering his talent. He is 1.80 and 76 kilos and was a midfielder. He did however play 28 games in Serie A. His best spell was with Chievo in 2002-‘03 under Luigi Delneri when the "Clivensi" finished 7th and Della Morte played 24 league games (with 4 goals), 4 in Coppa Italia and 1 in the UEFA Cup. He also got his revenge on Lazio, who had not believed in him, by scoring the winner in a 2-3 Chievo win at the Olimpico.
