In Avanti Savoia!, Luca was ordered to cover Matteo's battalion as he broke through Austro-Hungarian lines to capture a fortress situated deep in the mountains. After a bombing run that caused a massive rock slide, Matteo went missing. His worried brother began the trek to search for him at the fort and downhill from that fort. Eventually, after searching through several dead men who were a part of Matteo's battalion, Luca, who was giving into hope that he escaped, found his lifeless body on a large rock, and began mourning the loss of his brother.
- At the ending scene, where Luca cries over Matteo's body, the Cei-Rigotti rifle can be seen under dead brother's hand.
