The Gold of Naples

Where to watch

A quartet of Neapolitan tales - four captivating stories - wry, delightful and dramatic with that special humor and temperament and that enduring zest for life that characterizes these volatile people...

Tribute to Naples, where director De Sica spent his first years, this is a collection of six Napolitean episodes : a clown exploited by a gangster ; an inconstant pizza seller (Sofia) loosing her husband's ring ; the funeral of a dead child ; the gambler Count Prospero B. defeated by a kid ; the unexpected and unusual wedding of Teresa, a prostitute ; the "professor" Ersilio Micci, a "wisdom seller".
