La marcia su Roma / MARCH ON ROME
It Happened Yesterday

Demobilised after World War I with no profession, Domenico scrapes by in Milan on petty crime. Running into his old Captain Paolinelli, a ringleader of the fascist movement then still at the incubation stage, he decides to join their ranks. Meeting an old comrade at a demonstration, he convinces the man to sign up for the Black Shirts. Landing a two-year jail sentence after a run-in with the Police during a street sweepers' strike, the fascists set the pair of them free only a few months later, just in time for the March on Rome.
DINO RISI Acquiring a passion for cinema stoked by a group of intellectuals from Milan consisting among others of Comencini and Lattuada, this graduate in Medicine started out as a scriptwriter and documentary maker, going on to direct his first fictional film in 1951. He has since then had a number of successes with neorealism, traditional comedy, melodrama, social and political denunciation and drama. Golden Shell at San Sebastian for La nonna Sabella (Sabella, 1957) and the Silver Shell for Il tigre (The Tiger and the Pussycat, 1967).
