Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Napolitani a Milano (Neapolitans in Milan) was co-written and directed by Eduardo De Felippo, himself a Naples native. De Felippo also plays the leading role, a slum-dweller named Salvatore. When a new housing project is built, Salvatore and his neighbors are evicted. Five of these neighbors refuse to vacate, and are killed when the building they're living in collapses. Led by Salvatore, a group of friends and relatives (more than the victims actually had!) march to Milan, demanding financial restitution. Despite its seemingly sober subject matter, Napolitani a Milano is essentially a comedy, with a few brief romantic interludes featuring Frank Latimore and Anna Maria Ferrero.
