Biography

Italian popular singer, guitarist, and songwriter, who was often called "The Voice of Naples".

He debuted as a singer at the Royal Theater in Naples on 14 May 1944. In October 1944 he won a singing competition which resulted in a contract with Radio Naples, where he worked under the guidance of Gino Campese.

In 1948, he married Maria Cerulli. They had four daughters.

Over the following years he had many successes, both live and recordings. In 1960, he returned to his home in Naples to concentrate on Neapolitan songs. He had a big hit with Carmela (1975), which has since become a classic of the Neapolitan genre, and this was followed up by the album 'a maschera Pulecenella, which led to major television and stage appearances the following year.

In March 2000, he left Naples to join his daughters in Rome. In 2001, he recorded his last song, sung with Lino Blandizzi. He died in hospital in Rome on 22 June 2003.
