Gian Bistolfi (screenplay), Alessandro Blasetti (screenplay) | 2 more credits » Stars: Leda Gloria, Laura Nucci, Guido Celano

The upcoming Palio has got everyone in the Siena region impatiently waiting for the event; but in the district of Lupa --- which one the contest the previous year --- the biggest turmoil seems to be revolving around passion. Everyone sympathetic to Lupa agrees that their jockey is the best and after his victory at Siena, he won the heart of Fiora. But now he's having a hard time resisting the charms of a singer at a local tavern, who's given him the key to her room for some jockeying around after dinner. The end result of his attempt to cheat on his beloved is a slip on some barrels, which lands him half dead in the hospital. So, this year, Lupa's entry at the Palio will have to be Fiora's brother, an idiot, who can't do anything right. Just when all seems lost, Lupa's champion jockey decides to leave the hospital, take part in the race after all and win back Fiora's heart (all of which could've been avoided had he been able to keep it in his pants to start with!).

DVD-R is in Italian with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 86 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
