It's not for you.

My name's on it!

Are you the only Giuseppe?

So there's another Giuseppe

you were secretly following?

I wasn't following you.

I was going home.

This way? This doesn't go anywhere

near your house!

Give it back.

It you tell me who the lucky Giuseppe is!

You don't know him.


But I know everyone in the village.

He's not from here!

Sh*t! I get it!

Peppe Pugliese!

The cheesemaker!

And so? At least -

- he's not an idiot like you.

Come on. I'll take you.

I want to see Peppe's face

when you give him it!

You're not funny.

Come on, let's go...

You can tear it up!

Will I give it to him?

Come on, now! Don't be such a sissy!

Keep staring at it.


What will you do about your bag?

I'll come tomorrow after school

and see what's left.

Aren't you afraid to go back there?

Why? Aren't we going back together?

Yeah, sure.


Even though after that heroic rescue,

I really deserve it.

A little kiss at least...

I can't!

The cheesemaker's really jealous!

See you tomorrow at school.


Get on.

You can't ride this!

Yes, I can. Get on!

You're not 14.

I'll show you. I'm good at it!

But do your parents know?

What do you think?

My grandfather gave it to me

for my birthday.

Your mother doesn't mind?

No, I promised to drive slowly.

What if you get caught by the cops?

Oh, stop all these girly questions

and get on!

My mum doesn't want me to hang out

with you.

Don't be afraid.

Thanks for bringing me here.

Do you want to try?

Maybe next time.

Next time.


Pegasus was a winged horse.

Look at the shape of the constellation...

See all four stars?

When you look carefully,

you'll see it.

You're not going to regret this,

are you?

No way.

You realise how you've behaved,

don't you?

You come out of school and disappear.

I had to do some research on horses

and I went to the stables.


You couldn't do your research

with the horses in the village?

Do you really believe this nonsense

about doing research?

It's the truth, Mum.

You think I don't know

who you were with?

And it certainly wasn't homework

you were doing.

And till this time as well...

Leave me alone.

Come on, Saveria, that's enough.

Let's eat something.

With the insulin I can't...

You eat!

There's pasta in the fridge.

Try to get it into your head...

We've got nothing to do

with those people.

Everyone in the village saw you.

Hanging on to him on that scooter...

A school friend like any other.

Enjoy your meal.

What lovely little pages

about your knight...

He doesn't seem like just another

school friend.

Your writing and drawing are lovely.

You mustn't touch my stuff!

But not even a couple of lines

about his father, not even a picture.

How come?

He's an interesting subject.

What, don't you know where he is?

What's Giuseppe got to do

with his father?

Are you listening to the way she reasons?

Have you not got anything to say?

And what could I say?

She's even more stubborn than you.

You, my girl, you just need

to concentrate on studying.

Don't make the same mistake as me...

At my age, I'm not planning on

marrying anyone.

Did love triumph?

Or your usual cowardice?




Weird happened.

Maybe he felt sick and someone

took him home.

Today he's still not well.

And that's why he's not at school.

And he left me there,

without saying anything?

Males! Hypocrites, fakes and traitors.

Trust me. I've got three brothers.

Three masterpieces.

Yesterday was so magical, Lori.

Was there a kiss?

Did he kiss you or did you kiss him?

Whoever did whatever, -

- it seems you liked it.

More beautiful than my wildest dreams.

Meaning? Tongues?

Stop it!

Anyway, I've figured out

why he vanished after the kiss.

- Why?

- He must have read the letter!

What do you mean?

Jeez! It was mushy!

And the drawings on the envelope...

Gave me the shivers!

Some friend.

But what have you got in common?

Nada de nada!

Three things in his head:

Horses, football and videogames!

You don't know him. He's really

clever and he makes me laugh...

Watch! Catch someone in the face

with those tits, you'll kill them!

Good morning! Is Giuseppe at home?

Conigliaro. Would you like to

help your companion -

- who is obviously in a state of confusion?

Miss, Giuseppe hasn't been to school

for 17 days.

Is he sick?

His family told the headmaster -

- that Giuseppe won't be coming

to school for a while.

Why not?

I don't know.

Something must've happened to him.

We'd have heard, wouldn't we?

We're his classmates -

- and we want to know

why he's not here.

Concentrate on studying.

So when Giuseppe comes back,

we can all help him catch up.

When's he coming back?

Stop mucking about, you.

We don't know.

Maybe we could go and see him.

Only you could have found me.

Don't be scared.

I'm with you.

Good morning.

I came to give this to Giuseppe.

Why isn't he coming to school?

Has he gone to see his father?

What's going on? Can I come in?

Get in!

Giuseppe's not well

and can't see anyone!

I'll keep my distance,

he won't infect me.

You'll see him when he comes back

to school.


That's enough now!

And don't show your face

around here again!

Tomorrow I'll be back!



My boy!


Mum, where are you?

Mum, help me!


How many times do I need to tell you?
