|“||Alberto Scorfano: I started when my dad left.
Luca Paguro: You were living here alone for that many days?
Alberto Scorfano: I just stopped counting after a while. He said I was old enough to be on my own. I just thought that... Maybe he'd change his mind, honestly though I get it - he's better off without me. You are too.
|~ Alberto Scorfano on his abandonment.|
Mr. Scorfano is the unseen overarching antagonist in Pixar's 24th full-length animated feature film Luca.
He is Alberto Scorfano's estranged father who abandoned him for unknown reasons, thus causing Alberto to be jealous and possessive of people out of fear of being alone again.
A year before the movie events, Alberto used to live with both his dad and unknown mother before he got eventually abandoned by his dad when he was thirteen. His last words were that Alberto was old enough to live on his own although he was barely a teenager. This event caused him to become jealous as he was scared of being left behind again.
He was first mentioned, when Alberto brought titular protagonist to his lair. He claimed to live there with his dad despite his long "absence". It was a lie as he meant to not reveal his sad origins to Luca and to be cool friend for him.
The truth of Alberto's abandonment finally came to light when Luca came to apologize to his best friend after hurting his feelings and betraying him. He then noticed strange marks on the wall and demanded explanation from Alberto. It's then he revealed truth about getting abandoned by his dad and confessed to Luca he hoped for his dad's change of mind before realizing that he'd never come back thus making Alberto blaming himself for that event and thinking of himself as a "bad kid, who never should have friends". Luca, now realizing his friend's reason for being jealous of him hanging out with Giulia, decides to make up for hurting and betraying Alberto by winning Portorosso Cup Race and buy their Vespa with won money.
In the end, Luca and Alberto won the race and bought a Vespa, and despite being exposed of their true forms, they are accepted by the townspeople (except for Ercole Visconti). Eventually, Alberto sold the Vespa in order for Luca to go to school with their friend Giulia Marcovaldo while he remains with Giulia's father Massimo, who decides to take Alberto in as his new adoptive son.
It is unknown what actually happened to Mr. Scorfano after leaving his son behind.
- His name could possibly be Bruno, as Alberto made the catchphrase “Silenzio Bruno!”.
