Fiaminghi attended the Lyceum of Arts and Crafts in São Paulo between 1936 and 1941, where he studied painting under Waldemar da Costa. During the same period, he studied graphic arts, dedicating himself for a long time to lithography and working in the main graphic industries in São Paulo. In 1946, he established Graphstudio, his graphic production office, which led him to work in the advertising area. In the mid-1950s, Fiaminghi joined the group of concrete artists in São Paulo, led by Waldemar Cordeiro. He actively participated in the 1st National Exhibition of Concrete Art. During this period, his works, while exhibiting limited color variety, created a visual rhythm and hinted at the displacement of geometrized figures.

Later, Fiaminghi contributed to the establishment of the Ateliê Coletivo do Brás and developed the Virtuais series. Between 1959 and 1966, he frequented Volpi’s studio, refining his tempera painting technique and delving further into the transparency of colors. In 1963, he co-founded the Associação de Artes Visuais and the Galeria Novas Tendências in São Paulo. Six years later, he founded the Ateliê Livre de Artes Plásticas in São José dos Campos, where he served as director and professor. In the 1980s, his brushstroke departed definitively from concrete rigidity. 

Fiaminghi dedicated the majority of his career, spanning from 1960 to 1990, to the study of color. He referred to this significant aspect of his production as Corluz, sometimes opting for the use of photolithotic grids and offset in CMYK, and at other times, employing tempering techniques.
