“Checco Zalone brought the Italians together in the cinemas” comments with satisfaction Pietro Valsecchi, producer of the film. “An incredible result that makes me even happier because it rewards Checco’s first work as director, a bet won not only for the takings but also for the success of the film, which has been able to entertain and excite young and old beyond every ideological division. The new decade begins well for Italian cinema thanks to this injection of trust and receipts that fall on the entire cinema system”.
