Gino studied voice techniques at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. At the age of 23, he won the Vienna International Vocal Competition of 1935. For the next six years, Gino became a member of the Berlin State Opera and signed a four year contract with Deutsche Grammophon singing in Leipzig, Danzig, Hamburg, Vienna and Paris. In 1944 Gino returned to Italy to continue performing at the La Fenice opera house in Venice.
During his long career, Gino has interpreted various works into Italian and German languages singing along Beniamino Gigli, Tito Gobbi and Maria Callas under great conductors such as Paul Hindemith and Herbert von Karajan.
As a light lyric tenor, Gino recorded arias and duets from Don Pasquale, L'elisir d'amore and La bohème over a period of 45 years. Gino also appeared in several Italian films depicting an opera singer (see IMDB filmography in external links).
