The 31-year-old has signed a one-and-a-half-year deal at Brescia after cancelling his contract at Roma.
Delvecchio admitted it was a hard decision to leave Roma after ten years at the club.
"It was a very painful decision because I love the club, the fans and the town," said Delvecchio.
"I spent ten wonderful years here but I felt that at this stage of my career I had to try and play on a more regular basis somewhere else."
Meanwhile, Roma are believed to handed a trial to former Liverpool and Everton ace Abel Xavier.
The Portuguese international is set to undergo a ten-day trial at Roma as he seeks to find a new club.
Xavier, who had a trial at Southampton earlier this month, has been without a club since leaving Hannover in the summer.
