Inazuma Eleven 3: Sekai e no Chousen!!

  • "He does intensive training in Venice in order to become a first-class gondola rower."


Gianluca has fair skin and is of standard height. He has neck-length dark brown hair and light blue eyes.


In the game, he left the team before the match against Team K, refusing to play in an unofficial match. While in the anime, he got injured and wasn't able to play.

He, along with most of the other members in Orpheus, didn't trust Mr. K until Fideo convinced them, making the team able to use Catenaccio Counter during the match against Inazuma Japan. Later, his team lost to Little Gigant, which made the team depressed. In repay for the help Inazuma Japan had given them, they showed some skills in the practice match against Inazuma Japan to show how Little Gigant plays.
