The choir was created by Mariele Ventre in 1963 at the Antoniano Institute for children to sing together at the Zecchino d'Oro festival, started only five years earlier. In the very beginning there were few kids in the choir but it changed very fast and the choir became much larger (up to about 80 children at some time).
In 1995, after Ventre's death the choir was taken by Sabrina Simoni and changed its name to Piccolo Coro "Mariele Ventre" dell' Antoniano in the founder's honor.
Since November 22, 2003, the children of the choir have been Italian Good Will Ambassadors.
