Pane e tulipani


- Bread and Tulips -

In the year 273 B.C.

when the Romans came here

and encountered the Greeks

for the first time,

history took a huge leap forward.

What do I mean by that?

Greek idealism, a civilization

of music and philosophy,

and roman pragmatism,

a civilization of law

and rationality,

blended perfectly to

create a new culture,

that forms the basis

of Western civilization,

of which we Italians, the

greatest people on earth,

should be the proud heirs.

Our blood contains the genes

of Greeks and Romans, the greatest

civilizations of all time.

These genes are what urge you

to leave the train of rationality

in the main station of your town:

Verona, Turin, Milan...

- Pescara.

- Why not? Pescara too...

for the ship of fantasy to sail

the routes of ancient peoples

and drink to their enthusiasm.

We're now in the temple of Ceres.

Although scholars claim that

it is dedicated to Athena.

Athena in Greek, Minerva in Latin.

Do you know, who Minerva was,

apart of a brand of matches?

Minerva, china bathroom fittings

with porcellain and chrome piping.

- The same old bullshit!

- You know Dad's humor...

- Can you put this in your bag?

- Does anybody know, who Aphrodite was?

- The goddess of beauty

- And love too.

Because love is more important

then beauty.

Grandma, can you lend me

10.000 lire?

- Samy, you already had your allowance.

- So did her cousins.

- Mom...

- Salvo, film us...

Come on, Alba. Get us here,

right here, by the column,

with the temple behind us. Closer.

Eight steel pans with a double bottom.

Take a look at the new microfiber

line. It's a perfect fit.

I'm sorry, but I've had mine for

40 years and they're fine.

This is the "young" line

Anyhow I was talking to Rosa.

Samy, stop it. Ask your father better,

if we need the pan with the drainer.

I even got slips from "Positano".

It's lithium. It lasts 96 hours.

They say you don't have to change it.

It lasts a lifetime.

I recharged it last night and it's

still going. The other batteries are useless.

- Still got the same number?

- It's a GSM.

- Dad, can I call Cinzia?

- One minute then! It's a peak time.

Nic? Call your friends in Rome,

those with the house in Francavilla.


You coud see your friends in Rome,

while we're at St Peter's.

- What friends?

- Those with the beach house.

Be careful!

Lello, where are the restrooms?

Hello? I'd like a sandwich

and some water!

Oh my gosh...

How can I get it?

My tweezers...


God, what an idiot.

Maybe with that...

Where are they?

There they are.

Oh! What are they doing?

They're just leaving...



He's changed his number!

For God's sake, what now...

They haven't even noticed I'm gone

Would Mrs. Rosalba Barletta

please come to the phone.

That's me.

I don't believe it! Always you!

You all left without me!

I was in the restroom, Mimmo!

- You fell asleep in the can?

- Of course not!

- What do we do now?

- I don't know.

- We're two hours behind the schedule

- You should have checked before leaving.

- So it's our fault?

- You're the one who's missing!

- I noticed.

- Do me a favor:
Wait there and don't move.

- Okay?

- Yes, okay.

Sorry, I'm hopeless.

- Join the club.

- Believe me, I'm unequalled.

Now he controls it all.

He makes 10.000 kinds of bread:

With seaweed, truffles...

He's raking the money in.

Before I never even realized,

he had such a head for business.

He was stoned around the clock,

but we screwed like crazy.

When I came back, I forgot about him.

I had problems with my bar and

then, one fine day he turned up!
