In this delightful episodic comedy about Naples, De Sica pays tribute to the city where he spent his childhood. Loosely structured around four short vignettes and featuring some of Italian cinema’s biggest stars – including De Sica as an upper-class gambler - this anthology showcases the lyric beauty of Naples and De Sica’s evident love for its people and places while subtly plumbing the depths of the human heart.
