Story of young and shy Piero growing up in a popular area of Livorno (Leghorn) that has the same name as Piero's nickname ("Ovosodo" - "Boiled egg") from his childhood until marriage and coming of age. Mostly a story about all the people that changed his life: Giovanna, the teacher that pushes him to study, his best friend Tommaso, his great love Lisa who will definitively sail away. It's also a story about all the disillusions and compromises in finding one's place in life. Written by

Great social fresco, how to turn structuralist critic in a deep and intelligent comedy
At a first glance Ovosodo is the same old film about coming of age in a shanty town, growing up in a rough area in a poor and exploited family, then, like in medieval frescos, the plot turns the attention to the panorama behind, to the social condition that tends to make necessary every choice. Ovosodo is a comedy but deeply rooted in a language and in a peculiar red-neck culture.
