Il raccomandato di ferro

Il raccomandato di ferro is a 1959 Italian comedy film directed by Marcello Baldi and starring Mario Riva. It grossed 89,3 million lire at the Italian box office.


Augusto Zinconi is a former Roman usher who found employment in an oil industry in Mestre thanks to a false letter of recommendation from Undersecretary Goffredo Monaci. Laggard and libertine, after bribing the doorkeeper of the plant to get his card stamped in his absence, he manages to escape dismissal by claiming to be a longtime friend of the undersecretary, who has meanwhile become a powerful minister, the only person who could save the industry from bankruptcy. He was then sent to Rome to have the important file signed by the minister; helped by luck, he manages to obtain the document, already signed previously, without meeting Monaci. Returning to Mestre as a triumph, he obtained new and greater positions, until one day the minister's visit to the industry was announced, putting Zinconi and Monaci in front of each other for the first time.
