Summary
On the eve of retirement, Giovanni feels as if he has conquered a small segment of the world, successfully (and without regret) leaving behind his peasant origins to become a bureaucrat, and owner of his own fragment of urban sprawl-a tiny flat on the outskirts of Rome. But he needs to secure the continuing social climb for his son Mario, and find him a post in the Ministry. Giovanni seems within an ace of realising his ambition-but at the last minute, life delivers him defeat.
