CareerEdit

Born in Bolzano, South Tyrol, Guerra started his career at Veneto club Hellas Verona. He made his Serie A debut on 15 September 1991, against Internazionale; he came on as a substitute for Marino Magrin in the 59th minute. He made his second appearance for Verona on 3 November 1991, against Parma, replacing Paolo Piubelli in the 53rd minute; the match ended in a 1–1 draw.

After Verona were relegated in June 1992, Guerra left for Serie C1 side Salernitana. In the 1993–94 season, Guerra returned to Verona, where he became a regular starter for the club in Serie B. In the 1994–95 season, he left for city rival and Serie B newcomers Chievo Verona. With Chievo, Guerra won an historic promotion to Serie A (the first one in the club's history) during the 2000–01 season, under coach Luigi Delneri, although he was injured and missed most of the season.[3]

On 22 August 2001, Guerra left for Serie B newcomers Palermo in a co-ownership deal, where he played 33 times in the league.

After Maurizio Zamparini purchased the Sicily side in July, Zamparini bought some players from Venezia, the club which he had previously owned, and sent Palermo's Daniele Amerini and Guerra back to Venezia, along with Igor Budan and Evans Soligo, who had also been purchased from Venezia.

Guerra was not included in the squad for the 2003–04 season.

In 2004–05, Guerra left for his hometown club F.C. Südtirol, where he played for two seasons in Serie C2.

In July 2007, he was signed by Serie C1 side Monza.[4]

The following season, he left for Eccellenza Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol side Merano, and in the 2008–09 season, he played for Serie D side Bolzano; both clubs are located in South Tyrol.[5] In November, he was released.
