Born in Rome, Delle Piane made his debut at the age of twelve in Duilio Coletti's Heart; he starred in the stereotypal role of an arrogant but basically kind-hearted boy in many films until the mid-fifties.[2] The turning point of his career was the encounter with Pupi Avati, with whom Delle Piane experienced more significant and varied roles, going from comic surreal performances to melancholic and even dramatic shades.[2]

In 1984 he won the Nastro d'Argento for Best Actor for his performance in Una gita scolastica.[3] For his role in Regalo di Natale he won the Volpi Cup at the 43rd Venice International Film Festival.[3]
