In the Name of the Sovereign People (Italian: In nome del popolo sovrano) is a 1990 Italian historical comedy-drama film written and directed by Luigi Magni. It won the David di Donatello for best costumes.
The film is set in Rome in 1848 - 1849. Violent revolutionary uprisings by young liberals create havoc in the city, while the Church and the nobles do not care and think only of saving their property. The King of Italy for convenience supports the policy of the French emperor, intending himself to fight against Austria to regain the old domains to Italy many years ago. The First Italian War of Independence is lost and Roman patriots Angelo Brunetti and Giovanni Livraghi are shot with the condemnation of enemies of the Italian nobility and the king.
