Does the string Riccardo.Veraldi exist in another attribute, like CN or

If so change your filter:

filter =

Provided that the record is located, radius will use the dn of the

I don't know why failed ldap lookups aren't rejecting the request. Maybe
you don't have 
ldap block in the authenticate section.
