An october of seventy years ago.
Two journalists of the Incom Week, an epic newsreel that preceded each viewing of any movie at the theatres, are invited by a poet who would become one of the symbols of the Roman popular wisdom: Trilussa.
A poor imprudent Sheep,
they pass a river carelessly,
fell into the water, did: glu-glu-glu,
and he saw no more.
Of course, all the companions,
knowing and done, they ran to the place
and they began to sore.
- Poor Pecorella!
- She who was so hot!
- She who was so beautiful! -
Pure Omo ciannò: but, neither the fury
to demonstrate Christian piety,
instead of screaming: - Poor Sheep! -
he screamed: - Poor wool! -
