He made his debut at Teatro alla Scala in 1940 and after WWII he began an international career, appearing at all the major opera houses around the world, including a debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 1949. He appeared in two legendary performances opposite Maria Callas in the early 1950's. He taught voice in Florence after retiring from the stage.
