Pino was self-taught. As a young man he started to do research and experiments in the realm of visual communication. He became a co-ordinator of the Nebbiolo design group, responsible for their promotions. From 1952 he worked as a graphic designer and teacher, first at the Castello and the
Scuola Umanitaria, later at the Scuola Politechnica di Design. He was a co-founder of the agency CNTP. His graphic design was always related to his research into communication and photography.

When Italy’s post-war industrialization took place, he worked for Pirelli, Fini, RAI and Alitalia. He was the founder and president of the Milan Art Directors Club, and a member of ADI from 1954. Tovaglia won many awards in design and advertising. He was a photographer, illustrator, type designer and concrete poet.
