Synopsis

Unable to bear the sweltering heat of Rome, civil engineer Enrico Marletti decides to join his wife for a summer weekend by the sea. As soon as he arrives, however, he is caught up in a never-ending round of introductions to the many acquaintances of his wife, Giuliana. Instead of relaxing, Enrico must fight off noisy children, practical jokers, emptyheaded young women, and boring married couples. Though hoping to spend some time alone with Giuliana, he ends up following her from one loud party to another. Jealousy also adds to his problems when Enrico discovers his wife being kissed by a handsome bachelor. After Giuliana has convinced him that she could never be unfaithful to him, Enrico returns to Rome. Falling into bed, he at last finds the peace and quiet he had vainly sought in Riccione.
