His father was a judge, on one of whose cases the libretto of I Pagliacci was based. He studied at the Naples Conservatory, leaving at the age of eighteen with the diploma of maestro. He lived by teaching singing and piano, and accompanying soloists in cafe concerts in France, Holland, Germany, England and Cairo. His later operas achieved only moderate success.
