Antonio Renee Descartes was born on February 29, 1888 to Oberto and Olivia Descartes, in Rome Italy. His parents were French immigrants.

He was the oldest of five children, only three of which lived to adulthood. His family was devoutly Roman Catholic, and Antorinno attended Catholic school. He nearly joined the priesthood, but decided to pursue a career in police work instead.

In 1908, he graduated from the University of Rome with a degree in Police Administration. He served as a junior investigator for the Rome Municipal Police until 1915, when he was conscripted into the Italian army. He spent the entirety of his active duty on the Isonzo Front, participating in all nine battles there as well as the reorganized offensive at the battle of Vittorio Veneto.

At the end of the war in 1918, he was released from military service and returned to Rome, where he attempted to reestablish his career with the Rome Municipal Police. This was not possible, due to a lack of available positions and Antorinno found himself disillusioned and unemployed. He remained in this state for a year, when he finally landed a position with the Papal House Guard.

He worked his way through the ranks until he achieved his current position as the Commissioner of the Papal House Guards.
