Benigno was born in Palermo, Sicily, the twelfth of thirteen children. He made his first acting debut in 1989, in Mery per sempre, directed by Marco Risi. He played the same role of Natale Sperandeo in the film's sequel, Ragazzi fuori (Boys on the Outside), for which he won two awards as Best Actor, the Ciak d'Oro at the Venice Film Festival, and the Premio Piper. Both films were set in his native Palermo.
Benigno has since performed regularly in cinema, television, and has appeared on stage in two theatrical performances. Benigno appeared on the reality show La Fattoria in 2005, and has made many television guest appearances. He has also released CDs, and sang a live duet with singer Marco Masini at the Sanremo Music Festival in 2009, which was televised by Rai Uno. In 2008, he won the Grifoni D'argento Award for best director of a short film, the autobiographical Benigno.
