Wind Rises, The
The Wind Rises (風立ちぬ; Kaze Tachinu) is a 2013 Anime movie directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The young Jiro Horikoshi decides that he wants to build airplanes. In a dream, he met the Italian aircraft engineer Caproni and has brought him one of his wisdom: It is much nicer to construct aircraft than to fly them. For this reason, the now-grown Jiro begins some years later to study engineering at the University of Tokyo. On a train ride, he meets the handsome Naoko, his great love. But it takes many years and a chance reunion until the two get engaged. But sharing time is not easy for the couple: while Jiko builds warplanes over the years as the lead developer for several companies, Naoko is struggling with health issues.

During Jiro Horikoshi's first dream with Giovanni Battista Caproni, several Caproni Ca.3 bombers are seen with air-cooled Fiat-Revelli M1914 machine guns.
