At the age of 15, De Rossi was spotted by director Alberto Lattuada in a beauty contest. Her film debut was in Lattuada's Stay As You Are (1978), alongside Marcello Mastroianni and Nastasia Kinski. She went on to play Virna Lisi's screen daughter in La Cicala (The Cricket) in 1980, again directed by Lattuada. In 1983, she played Bradamante, the famous female warrior, in Hearts and Armour directed by Giacomo Battiato. By the mid-1980s, she was gaining English-speaking roles  such as the beautiful Greek slave girl Eunice in the TV miniseries Quo Vadis? and Claretta Petacci, Mussolini's mistress in the docudrama Mussolini and I alongside the actors Anthony Hopkins (Count Galeazzo Ciano) and Bob Hoskins (Mussolini).  In 1990 she played Nys, a Montmartre prostitute, in Claude Chabrol's French-language film Quiet Days in Clichy, a dramatisation of Henry Miller's semiautobiographical novel based on his time in Paris. She has worked in film, theatre, and television since her debut, such as starring alongside Ray Lovelock in Raiuno's TV film Marco e Giulia – Inviati Speciali (Mark and Julia, Special Envoys).
In 1994, De Rossi shared the David di Donatello for Best Actress award with Asia Argento and Chiara Caselli for her part in the comic film Sentimental Maniacs. De Rossi has served as a judge on the junior talent show Ti lascio una canzone broadcast on Rai Uno since 2008.
