The Inheritance (Italian: L'eredità Ferramonti) is a 1976 Italian drama film directed by Mauro Bolognini. It was entered into the 1976 Cannes Film Festival, where Dominique Sanda won the award for Best Actress.[1]


Rome, 1880. Gregorio Ferramonti (Anthony Quinn) has decided to close the family bakery. Then he tells his sons Pippo (Gigi Proietti) and Mario (Fabio Testi), and daughter Teta (Adriana Asti) that they will have to fend for themselves. But Irene (Dominique Sanda), Pippo's beautiful, calculating new wife, is determined to inherit the family fortune, and uses the guise of reconciling old family feuds to do so.
