Born in Casigliano Sesso Cilento in 1911, he initially worked as a maker and repairer of guitars and mandolins. In 1951 he moved to America to work with his brother Vincenzo in Philadelphia. He then spent four years in New York as a restorer for Rembert Wurlitzer, and finally established his own shop in Miami after 1956. He produced over 200 violins, mostly on the Stradivari model, using a clear orange-red spirit varnish and excellent finish. Usually branded De Luccia internally on the upper block.
