Eccezzziunale... veramente[1] is a 1982 Italian comedy film directed by Carlo Vanzina. It was shown as part of a retrospective on Italian comedy at the 67th Venice International Film Festival.[2]


Diego Abatantuono portrays three different parts as a tifoso (supporter) of the three main football teams of Italy: A.C. Milan, Internazionale and Juventus F.C.

The three characters are: Donato Cavallo (A.C. Milan supporter), the Ras (boss) of the hooligans of the southern stand in San Siro stadium; Franco Alfano, Inter supporter who believes he won the football lottery, but it's just a prank made by his friends; Tirzan, Juventus supporter, is a truck driver from Apulia, ho decided to follow his beloved team in Belgium for a Champions League game.



  1. The title is a distorted form of veramente eccezionale (roughly, "really outstanding") based on Abatantuono's trademark slang of the time, mimicking the talk of a poorly educated immigrant from Southern Italy.
