Soldier of Fortune (Italian: Il soldato di ventura) is a 1976 Italian comedy film directed by Pasquale Festa Campanile.[1] The film tells of the challenge of Barletta in a comic and grotesque style.[2][3]

Plot summary[edit]

In 1503 the soldier of fortune Ettore Fieramosca runs into various adventures, because he is given the task of leading a mob of bungling against the French army. In fact France has decided to conquer the city of Barletta in southern Italy, and so Ettore is forced to use brute force, rather than rely on the help of his fellow soldiers.
