Cena d’aragoste

Lobster Dinner

Hummer zum Abendbrot

 
## ##

Leone and Michele play football together, puff their first cigarettes, and exchange conspiratorial glances while secretly scrubbing their teeth in conspiracy afterwards. Michele, a boy from a wealthy family, loves to spend time at the chaotic but loving home of his friend Leone. Up to now, their different backgrounds were never an issue. Today Michele has brought a huge pot of lobsters, and carries the living creatures into his friend’s kitchen.
