In 1965, Gianni Morandi was unstoppable. The previous year, following on from his incredible chart successes, the film In ginocchio da te confirmed his status as one of the new heroes of the silver screen. Without wasting any time whatsoever, the sequel was made on the back of another song that would enter into the pantheon of Italian pop music. And as the recipe was already perfect, why change a thing: a promising romance hits the rocks, but in the end love will triumph, helped by the right dose of light comedy dressing and the good taste to put everything on hold so that Gianni may sing whenever the occasion arises. And fortunately, the occasions are plentiful, right up until the glorious finale: a song and a performance that even the most difficult of girlfriends could not refuse. In addition to his own songs, Morandi also gets the chance to try his hand at Schubert’s Ave Maria. All in all, it was good enough to convince everyone involved of the need for a third instalment, Se non avessi più te, released the same year.
Gianni, a young man from Bologna doing military service in Naples, is engaged to Carla. He is also a talented singer, and so he temporarily moves to Rome to record a disc. Meanwhile, another young man makes a move on his girl. Gianni mistakenly believes that she has cheated on him, but to gain forgiveness for his rashness he will dedicate a song to her.
