I've never done it but I would cut all leaves off the pstem and dig it up. Overwinter the whole pstem unless you have space restrictions.

This is how another forum member does it.

There are many great youtube videos that show you how to keep your banana plants indoors.
Pick and choose which method is easiest for you.

I don't know where you're located (I don't understand what Montecelli brusata is.), but if you're in zone 8b, I'd leave the stem, at least to start with. If you can observe it regularly, you can always cut it later, It's always better to start out with a bigger stem, in the spring.
