I think that film was ill-treated at Venice in 1964, when it was presented, the reason is obviously due to the fact there was a particular section devoted to films dedicated at young people enhancement. No matter. This film never has been promoted and distributed in Italy, simply it was forgotten. The only projection was made in Milan in time of carnival (it was a joke?), no one can say it.
