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

The three characters are: Donato Cavallo (A.C. Milan supporter), the chief 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, who decided to follow his beloved team to Belgium for a European Cup 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.
