Rivabella competed in the military rifle event. His score and place in the competition are unknown, but he was not among the top 13 of the 42 shooters that competed.
An important presence
This athlete is very important because his presence is proof that Italy competed at the first Olympic Games. Due to the refusal of Carlo Airoldi's request to participate, it was widely thought that Italy had no representatives. In 2004, however, a rediscovered Italian Navy report revealed this new figure.
