Racing under the pseudonym 'Geki', this talented driver from Milan was a multiple Formula Junior champion in Italy during the early 1960s, graduating from the relatively primitive Stanguellini to a Lotus. He was always difficult to beat at Monza, and thus a local attraction come Grand Prix time each year; after hiring Rob Walker's car and failing to qualify in 1964, he was subsequently seen in a works Lotus.

After an abortive time with the Abarth F2 car in 1964, 'Geki' raced occasionally for the Alfa Romeo works team in sports cars and GTs during 1965-66, and was still competing successfully in Italian F3 with a Matra when he met his death at Caserta in 1967. Having been involved in a multiple pile-up, the Swiss driver, Fehr Beat, jumped from his stricken car and ran back along the track to warn the leading bunch - which included 'Geki', who was tragically unable to avoid striking and killing his unfortunate rival. The Italian's Matra then ploughed into a concrete wall and he perished when the car burst into flames.
