Educated at the University of Pisa, Fucini graduated in 1863. He then worked for an engineer in Florence. It was during this time that he began to write poetry and in 1871 published A Hundred Sonnets in the Pisan Vernacular (Cento sonetti in vernacolo pisano) which proved popular. He became a professor of fine arts at Pistoia and later worked as a school inspector. Fucini also produced prose works and achieved a certain degree of success with it, however, it is his poetry for which he is best remembered. For many years Fucini worked for the Riccardiana Library of Florence until his retirement in 1906. In 1916 he was elected to the Academia della Crusca. His works include Naples to the Naked Eye: Letters to a Friend (1878), The Blacks Vigils (1882), Outdoor (1897), In the Tuscan Countryside (1908), Things of the Past (1921), On the Wind (1922 Posthumous) and The Schoolteacher (1922 Posthumous).
