He was born in Palermo, Sicily, to a wealthy family, and studied architecture in Rome, before deciding to become a director.

His early documentaries focus on the everyday life of many of Sicily's poorest workers, and are notable for their lack of voice-over narration, quiet mood, and striking color.
In 2005 the rediscovery of Vittorio De Seta's work was a highlight of Tribeca Film Festival and Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, where was presented Détour De Seta, a documentary on the Italian director.[1][3]
