Totò, Peppino dolce vita (a.k.a. Toto, Peppino and the Sweet Life) is a 1961 Italian comedy film directed by Sergio Corbucci.[1]

It is a parody of Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita and it was filmed in the same sets.[2]


Antonio Barbacane is sent by his wealthy grandfather to Rome for trying to corrupt politicians to shift the route of a motorway on their town so to increase the land values. He, instead of accomplishing his mission, indulges in the pleasures of the city. his cousin Peppino, the municipal secretary of the town, a moralist and upright man to the point to remove the posters of the film La dolce vita, is sent there to control the Barbicane's work.
