Life and career

Born in Naples into a family of actors, Maggio had a turbulent adolescence that led his father to send him in an institute for problematic minors. He debuted on stage aged 18 years old.[1][2] He worked on stage in several sceneggiate and with the companies of Anna Fougez and Raffaele Viviani before creating his own revue company.[2]

Maggio was the brother of actors Enzo, Rosalia, Beniamino and Pupella Maggio.[2]
