Remove the scaffolds!

And this one!

Andrea!

Nicola!

Those two are always

something special.

It's finished.

Let's get down.

To jump down?

A chair!

I'm sure those who built this,

after completing their job

they would have stood here to

admire it like I'm doing now.

Those were great!

A miracle!

Here's to you,

Church of the Miracles,

and to our ancestors who

built it a thousand years ago

and to those who transmitted

to us this craft of ours,

made by our hands

and by our imagination.

Of course, I also drink

to your health

because you have restored

the facade to its former glory.

Please allow me to thank

my seven sons

who have been working with you

but, especially,

to raise my glass

to these two little rascals

over there

the two youngest

who have hands of gold,

of real masters.

Yet all you have proved skilled

so you should not feel offended

If I praise those two too much.

That's fine, father...

but you wanted us to reunite

in order to tell us something else

more important...

less pleasant...

Take it easy.

A son ought not to

upset his father.

I've decided to speak later

after the last dish.

Father.

You have started

and I have to finish.

Duccio is right.

This is a farewell dinner.

The work we have just accomplished

will be the last.

We are seriously struck by crisis.

The firm is in so much debt

I have to shut it.

My seven sons will decide

what to do, I will retire

in the countryside,

in the house where I was born.

You do know all the rest, don't you?

Those things were up in the air.

No!

I didn't know fuck anything!

I am flabbergasted!

This was supposed to be a feast!

And to think that

I even bought a gift!

This is a funeral!

And for me, isn't it?

Forgive me.

To our master!

So the brothers have decided

to sell off everything.

Yes, everything.

They'll open a great store.

And you, the children?

Yes, the "children" too.

We are to be vendors.

That will be enough.

This means you're going

to change profession?

All seven? Even the little

brothers with the hands of gold?

Yes. All seven.

We're about to recheck the accounts.

Not so loud,

you'll wake up dad.

- We shouldn't give up.

- We have both thought it well.

It's not in our interest to sell off.

The company can do without any workers.

The seven of us are enough.

Let's clear the table.

For a year...

For a year, we won't take any pay.

You, Pietro!

Don't get married right away.

And those who have family,

no more children!

Explain this to your wives!

Quiet!

Are you afraid that father

may hear us?

Leave it to me.

Duccio!

Explain yourself!

You're worried because

today father retired.

But we are both not!

Nicola and I went to see

our father in his house

in the country,

to say good buy...

We had decided to leave Italy

and go to America.

We won't return until we earn enough dollars

to buy our company back.

One day we'll work together again

in our cathedrals.

- I swear to you!

- Me too!

But you have to wait for us, father.

Do not die!

I will not.

They say if want to stay young,

live like the young.

So, I will stay a young man.

I swear to you!

What time is it in America?

It is morning.

Then, before going to sleep,

I will say to you: "Good morning

Andrea, good morning Nicola".

And then in the evening

I will say:
"Good morning

Andrea, good morning Nicola"

because it will make no difference.

You are two of you

and that's your force.

On the condition that

you will always remain equal.

Otherwise, you will become enemies.

Keep this in mind.

Forever and ever be equal
