Vito was born in Putigagno in Puglia and discovered dance at the age of just 5. He soon asked to dance and began with ballet, but the big revelation really came in the Ballet school in Tuscany run by Christina Bozzolini. His father had allowed him to go to Florence and that was where he realised that he would make dancing his career. When he was 22, after finishing his studies, he was selected to join the European training and professional placement project (D.A.N.C.E.) run by William Forsythe, Frédéric Flamand, Wayne McGregor and Angelin Preljocaj. Vito joined the Ballet National de Marseille in 2007.
