The film"s page

In 1944, in Milan, the Germans ask small-time swindler Bertone to pretend to be General Della Rovere, a patriotic hero who has just been killed so they can spy on the resistance fighters. Bertone is then immediately contacted by Bianchelli who, however, is tortured and dies before being able to convey his message. Bertone, overwhelmed by what has just happened, realizes his mistake, refuses to collaborate with the Germans and chooses to die with the other condemned prisoners. Gold Lion, Venice Festival, 1959.
