He learned to read and play music before the age of four, and at the age of 14, he became the bass player for the band Statuto. In 2011, following an operation due to the removal of a neoplasm, he was struck by a neurodegenerative syndrome which, however, did not prevent him from continuing to play, compose and direct, a syndrome that had initially been wrongly indicated by the media as ALS. Bosso later abandoned popular music in order to become an orchestral conductor and classical composer. He conducted such prominent orchestras as the London Symphony Orchestra.
Bosso has won several awards for his compositions, including the Australian Green Room Award, the Syracuse NY Award and two David di Donatello Awards. His compositions have appeared in various films, performance art and theatrical productions.
In September 2019 Bosso let it be known that due to a neurodegenerative illness he was losing the control of two fingers. Therefore he was not able to play the piano anymore.
