Luca Ceccarelli started his career at AC Fiorentina. He made his Serie A debut against Internazionale, on 25 November 2001, at age of 18. That season he played 12 Serie A matches. He rejected a contract extension in April 2002. and then on 30 June 2002, Ceccarelli was signed by A.C. Milan. His team-mate Emiliano Moretti joined Juventus on the same day, but the funds raised from these transfers were insufficient to prevent AC Fiorentina's bankruptcy that year.
Ceccarelli proved unable to break into the first team in Milan and spent his time there on loan. He was loaned to Venezia of Serie B in August 2002, and in January 2003 to Fermana (Serie C1). In the following seasons, he was loaned to Spezia and Pro Patria (Serie C1). In 2005/06 season, he joined Catanzaro (Serie B). In 2006/07, he was back to Serie C1 for Lucchese. In summer 2007, he rejoined Spezia, this time in Serie B.
In June 2008, Milan bought back Ceccarelli from Internazionale for a nominal fee, made Inter had a profit as the club no longer needed to pay for the residual half for over 2 million. At the same time Milan write down €2.582 million for the residual value of the player contract, as the revenue (and profit if any) of sold was treated as full registration rights in 2002 and the retained half was treated as a special asset called "co-ownership asset" with a value of €2.583 million.
