Synopsis: One year in a small northern Italian coastal town in the late 1930s is presented. The slightly off-kilter cast of characters are affected by time and location, the social mores dictated largely by Catholicism and the national fervor surrounding Il Duce aka Benito Mussolini and Fascism. The stories loosely center on a mid-teen named Titta and his household including his adolescent brother, his ever supportive mother who is always defending him against his father, his freeloading maternal Uncle Lallo, and his paternal grandfather who slyly has eyes and hands for the household maid. Other townsfolk include: Gradisca, the town beauty, who can probably have any man she wants, but generally has no one as most think she out of their league; Volpina, the prostitute; Giudizio, the historian; a blind accordionist; and an extremely buxom tobacconist. The several vignettes presented include: the town bonfire in celebration of spring; life at Titta's school with his classmates and teachers; Aurelio

Why couldn't it have been 69?

There will come a day

when a renewed ltaly

will take to the field of battle

on her own behalf

and not to defend her soil for others,

with their weapons.

Being spirit, the Universal

becomes incarnate in the state

and cannot but enter

into the true nature of the church.

But this reconciliation between church

and state came about through a deity

who brought order

to members of church and state,

demanding iron discipline

and the right to intervene

in every aspect of individual life.

e is God's chosen son

because he has

the same power as the Father.

Then there is the oly Spirit,

to be placed on the same level

as the Father and the Son.

ls that clear?

That is why God is one

and also a trinity.

Today we'll speak

of the great Giotto.

Whose balls exploded like this!

Do you know, boys and girls,

why Giotto is so important

in ltalian painting?

l'll tell you:

because he invented perspective.


Teacher, may l leave the room?

Bobo let a real stinker!

What's that?

You're crazy.

lt's not true. l never fart.

- You do too.

- l do not.


signed the peace.

Gigliozzi, out!

This one isn't difficult.

Solve it.

Why did you stop?

You were doing fine.

What were you trying to do?

- Give me a clue.

- Pass it here.

Just think a moment.

X9 plus the square root of K3.

lt's obvious!

Move over.

What have you done here?

We'll go through it together.

What's this here?

What's this here, l said.

You must know how to read.

- But l -

- Keep quiet!

X9 plus the square root of K3...

There's your answer.

X1 = 1 40.

X2 = 3/5ths of the total,

less the difference.

ls that clear?

What have you done?

Are you crazy?


- Greek is so beautiful, isn't it?

- You betcha.

lt's so musical.
