Il Conte Tacchia Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Loosely based on an historical character and his ennoblement by a Pope, Conte Tacchia relates the adventures of Checco ([[Performer~P103322~Enrico Montesano~enricomontesano]]), an upbeat carpenter living at the beginning of the 20th century who is convinced that he is the illegitimate son of a local prince ([[Performer~P26125~Vittorio Gassman~vittoriogassman]]). Because of his fixation, Checco is nicknamed "Count Tacchia" for the wedge tacchia that a carpenter puts underneath the short leg on an unbalanced table. Checco tries to romance a young Duchess and soon becomes the brunt of cruel jokes by the aristocracy, but then King Humbert actually gives him the title of Count so Checco can fight a French swordsman in a duel to the death. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
