Born in Rome into a humble family, in 1943 De Lullo enrolled at the Silvio d’Amico Academy of Dramatic Arts, but after two years he was forced to leave the courses as he had contravened the strict academic regulations appearing in a stage work directed by Mario Landi and held at the Teatro Manzoni in Milan.[1] The same year he got critical acclaim for his performance in Il Candeliere directed by Orazio Costa.[1] In 1946 he made his film debut, and worked on stage with Luchino Visconti, with whom he collaborated intensively in the following years.[1] In 1954 De Lullo co-founded the theatrical company "La compagnia dei giovani" together with Rossella Falk, Anna Maria Guarnieri, Romolo Valli and Umberto Orsini, and the company achieved national and international success.[2] He debuted as a stage director in 1955, with an adaptation of Colette's Gigi.[1] He died of cirrhosis of the liver.[1]
