Carlo learned the violin as a child and went on to graduate from the Conservatory of Music Giuseppe Verdi in Turin where he studied piano, violin, composition, and conducting.

In 1950 his fellow townsman Carlo Borghezio asked him to  he started compose the music for his film Il Monello Della Strada, starring Macario, thus igniting his career of composing music for cinema, but also that of arranging the works of other composers.
