Italy's top fighter ace of World War I, credited with 34 aerial victories. The emblem he wore side by side on his plane of a black horse prancing on its two rear hooves inspired Enzo Ferrari to use it on his racing car and later in his automotive company. He died on 19 June 1918 at age 30 near Monte Montello, Italy.
