He served in the colony of Italian Somaliland in 1925–1926 and in Italian East Africa in 1936. On 24 May 1937, he received the Officer's Military Order of Italy (4th Class). After the outbreak of World War II he commanded the XXI Corps in the Western Desert Campaign in 1939–1940. He commanded the VI Corps in occupied Yugoslavia in 1940–1942, where he was instrumental in negotiating collaboration agreements with the Chetniks. On 24 December 1942, he received the Commander's Military Order of Italy (3rd Class).
He then served in Albania in 1943 as commander of the 9th Army. In March 1943 he negotiated an agreement with Ali Këlcyra of the Balli Kombëtar for their assistance in suppressing the communist resistance. The Dalmazzo–Këlcyra Agreement has been controversial in Albanian historiography. He was taken prisoner of war by the Germans in 1943 when Italy capitulated to the Allies. The circumstances of his death are unknown.
