"Born near Naples April 4, 1854 to Guiseppe Digneo and Teresa Corlochi, Carlo Digneo came to Santa Fe in 1880 with his brother Michelangelo. Here they joined a third brother Genaro, and brother-in-law Gaetano Palladino, skilled masons and stone cutters who had been recruited in the East to hasten the construction of St. Francis Cathedral. Although the cornerstone of this great edifice had been laid in 1869, it had been plagued with chronic financial problems and was still far from completion when the Digneos came. Soon augmented by the arrival of Palladino's son-in-law, Michele Berardinelli, also a builder and contractor, the local Italians seem to have adapted rapidly to Santa 'Fe's diverse culture. The Digneos and their relatives formed various partnerships which were responsible for erecting many residences and public buildings throughout New Mexico and at a few locations in Colorado and west Texas."

With Angela Damiani had six children. Nine years after the death of his first wife, Digneo married Magdalena Delgado, a daughter of Felipe B. Delgado. one of Santa Fe's most prominent merchants and businessmen. They had three children.
