Il-Maestro Antonio kien ġej minn familja ta’ mużiċisti u l-ewwel edukazzjoni fil-mużika minn missieru Hatha żona probabbli Epifanio. Lejn l-aħħar tas-seklu dsatax insibu lill-Każin tal-Banda Antonio Pinto ta’ Ħal-Qormi surmast, magħruf bħala Soċjeta Filarmonika Pinto Banda San Sebastjan u Soċjetà Filarmonika Leone A.D. 1863 tal-Victoria, Għawdex u Għaqda Madonna tal-Grazzja Banda San Mikiel Żabbar, ta’ Ħaż-Żabbar.
