Benvenuti al Sud (Welcome to the South), Miniero, 2010

After failing to lie his way into a cushy job in Milan, postal worker Alberto faces a grave punishment: being transferred south. Coming to the realization that his fears about Southern Italy were in fact mere prejudices, Alberto begins to appreciate the southern lifestyle and befriends the local population. However, when he sees an opportunity to strengthen his relationship with his wife Silvia when she comes to visit, he enlists the help of his friends to organize an elaborate ruse and trick her into believing that their prejudices about the south were true.
