Early in his career he worked with Ricardo Richardine, Sr.[1]

His show consisted of magic in first half and ventriloquism in the second. He brought his show on tour to the United States in 1936. His illusion show became so large that if all the magic was presented in one continuous performance, the show would run over 7 hours.

In 1937, while on tour, a car accident ended his life in Atlanta, Georgia. His son Aldo Richiardi, would eventually take over the show in 1943 and bill himself as Richiardi, Jr.
