[Perozzi's job as a news

editor ends at this hour,]

[then he gets out of his office

to go home. Oh! Perozzi is me.]

Thanks, doctor.

[I'm so used to be called "Perozzi"

by my colleagues and friends]

[...that I've almost forgotten

my first name is Giorgio.]

- Hi, Perozzi!

- Hi.

Black coffee laced with

Fernet. "Branca", please!

"Prostitutes slaughtered

by gangs of armed queers!"

"They're dying like flies: 4 in Turin,

2 in Florence and 18 in Lombardy!"

"Panic among the pimps!"

Enough, Perozzino! How can you

be willing to joke at this hour?

"Barkeeper's licence revoked

because he picks his own nose!"

Give me three packs of cigarettes too.

Come on, Wanda, I'll take you home.

Thanks. I'm waiting for

my man. He'll take me home.

A glass of milk and two brioches.

Those are yesterday's, the fresh

ones haven't been delivered yet.

Let's go to the baker's near the

station. He takes them out at this hour.

Thanks but I'm tired. I'll go home.

- Yesterday's will do.

- Alright.

What's wrong Perozzi? Can't

you find your way home today?

If you feel lonely,

I can keep you company

even if I'm off duty.

You'll pay half price.

Let him go to sleep! Can't you see

he's tired? He's just finished working.

- Well, so have I!

- Sorry, Italia, but he's right. Bye all.

I'd better go to sleep.

[But I don't feel like it.]

[The idea to lock myself up in the

house after spending the night at work]

[depresses me.]

[And then it's true. Today I

don't feel like being alone.]

[I need someone to laugh with,

to speak to, but not a whore.]

[A friend. Yes, my friends.

I'd really like to see them.]

[But at this hour, all

I can do is go home.]

[Perozzi's son is back!

Yes, that's his car.]

[Only Perozzi's son can

put a raincoat on his car.]

[No. I can't stand him,

not on a day like today.]

[When I think about my own flesh and

blood, I suddenly turn into a vegetarian.]

[What now?]

[They must all be asleep.]


[I should meet at least one of them.

Birillo is certainly out peeing already.]

Birillo, my goodness!

Slow down, Birillo!

- Hey!

- Hey!

- Where are you going?

- Who knows? Ask him.

What are your plans for today?

In the morning I have to

inspect some council houses...

...and I'll meet the building

commission at the Town Hall at five. Why?

Because today I feel like a gypsy.

What a day! It's never going

to be a day like this again.

- I'd like to leave.

- Then, I'll leave with you.

I'll send the surveyor to do the

inspection and I'll ignore the commission.


Birillo! Damn you!

Wait for me in Beccaria Square.

Put a brioche on the seat

and keep the car door open... we'll trick him.

What if he slept outside...

...and told his wife he was with us?

We'll tell her:
" Alice, it's

true. Your husband is with us".

"Go back to sleep".

- Quick!

- Hurry up! Come on!



But where are you going this time?

Oh, God! What happened?


- But at least tell me where you're going!

- I can't.

- Will you tell me what's happening?

- I'll tell you tomorrow.




- So she fell for it again!

- She fell for it? She believes it!

What else could she do?

With everything I do to her!

They only have two onions

left for today's lunch.

It's better this way. If they're

worried they won't get hungry.

Who's that?


- Not again! Oh, God!

- Not again? One month's passed by!

But where are you going?

And when are you coming back?

- We're gypsies, with no destination and no future.

- Come on, madam, awake him!

But it's seven o' clock! He was very

tired. He came home late last night.
