On the other hand, Romana's father is forced, to honor a gambling debt, to sell his daughter to a traveling merry go round owner. Giampiero, then decides to go in search of Romana and to elope her, as they had promised to each other...

If only Venezia

had beaten Juventus,

I would have got 600 euros

but it didn't happen.

If I could just win once,

just once!

You never win, Othello, never!

People like us have

to work for a living!

We pay after 60 days.

It's always been that way.

Where do you get these ideas?

You can't say no to a friend.

I don't have the money!

Look at what we've

made this morning!

Please, I'm in trouble

and don't know what to do.

You deserve it!

You sell beer to

those drunken gypsies!

I'm a supplier, I can't decide

who to sell to and who not.

That's hardly

what's going to ruin your business.

Can you help me,

I'm a refugee from Kosovo.

You dirty piece of shit!

- Stop that!

- You creep!

Leave her alone!

- They'll kill you!

- Get out, you animal!

You know what?

I'm never coming back here.

Go get your beer somewhere else!

- F*ck off!

- You animal!

Come here, sweetie.

Let me see.

We'll take you to the hospital,

they'll clean you up.

We'll put that animal behind bars!

Leave me alone,

don't touch me!

What did I do?

Forget it,

she's just a gypsy.

No, my van!

- Where are you going?

- Let me go!

Come here, my little boy!

Mommy, call the firemen!

Don't worry,

they're coming.

Mrs. Romoli!

Do you remember me?

I'm De Angelis's mom, class 2B.

De Angelis... right.

I apologize for not coming

to the teacher conferences.

- But I've been busy.

- That's why I don't remember you.

I know, I'm sorry.

I'll come next month,

I promise.

I'm working on an art exhibition,

I'm a painter.

But I'll start coming more,

I promise.

- Is your husband a painter?

- No, a shopkeeper, why?

I don't remember him either.

I know what you're saying,

but my husband and I

are good parents.

Well, I don't know,

but we try to be.

- Do you understand?

- No.
