Gioia was born in Villarosa, Sicily. His voice destined him to be a great lyric tenor such as Tagliavini, Schipa, Valletti, Alva and Di Stefano. A brain disorder forced him to abandon a very promising artistic career. His recovery in a hospital of Siracusa took a long time.

His repertory included La Sonnambula, Manon and L'Elisir d'Amore.

Outside Italy, he sang at Toulouse, Baden, Dublin and Lima. He took part in concerts with singers such as Magda Olivero, Fiorella Ortis and Edda Vincenzi.
