Join us for a screening of Poveri Ma Ricchi, and learn how the Tucci family tried to keep their 100 million euro lottery winnings a secret.
The Tucci are a poor family in a small village in Lazio: mother, father, a conceited daughter and a genius son. They also live with their brother-in-law, a botanical engineer but a lazy bum, and a grandmother who is addicted to TV. One day, something completely unexpected happens: the Tucci win one hundred million euro. They decide to keep the winnings a secret, but as it often happens in these cases, a slip of the tongue from the head of the family and now there is only solution: run from the village. Destination: Milan! Once they arrive and start their new life as millionaires, the Tucci quickly realize that today’s wealthy are no longer like those of the past: they keep a low profile, they eat little or nothing, they are ecologists, they are involved in charities, they keep fit and get around strictly by bicycle. Being rich today has become a big pain in the neck. This discovery is very different from what the Tucci were expecting.
