Plot: don Camillo has become monsignor, Peppone senator, and both of them has moved to Rome. They miss their town and they come back, in order to go on quarrelling.
The priest and the mayor reach an agreement on the matter of the Madonnina of the Borghetto (the “small chapel of contention”); don Camillo marries Peppone’s son in the church; Peppone (for the occasion Pepito Sbazzeguti) wins at Totocalcio and has a bell raised in front of the town hall, in order to make it ring for the funeral of a young communist activist, died during an expedition in Reggio Emilia (the “easing of tension” atmosphere that was created worldwide and locally is by now definitively compromised).
Between a cards game and a math into the river, the moment has come for our heroes to go back to the capital town: don Camillo and Peppone leave together hoping to meet soon.
