He studied in Vienna, Venice and Paris.
From 1921 to 1923 he taught composition at Parma Conservatoire and later became director of the Conservatoire in Venice. He was a prolific and original composer in all genre of music.

He also provided arrangements of music by earlier composers, of which his Vivaldiana is one example.
