Living in Florence, he embarked in 1819 in Livorno for America never to return. From 1820 to 1840, with a talent for language practice and for commerce, he became one of the most important slave traders active between Cuba and the coasts of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. First embarking on merchant ships, he was quickly confronted with piracy which developed after the end of the slave trade by the nations in the Antilles. He then moved to the coast region of Guinea, at the mouth of the Rio Pongo, as an employee and quickly as a trusted man and then on his own. He also made numerous journeys of convoys of cargoes of slaves to Cuba, thus recounting his races with British "cruisers", the rebellions of slaves, mutinies, shipwrecks. " (From Wikipedia)
