When she dies, he is sent to an orphanage, which he leaves as a teenager. When Totò goes out in the world, he expects everyone to be open-hearted as himself, but they aren’t. Without belongings or a place to live, he soon turns up among other homeless people, living scattered in boxes and cement pipes on a vast, barren field outside Milan. With his energy and enthusiasm, Totò quickly engages the outcasts in transforming the place into a small shanty town. The eccentric misfits are turned into a warm-hearted community. But when the wealthy Mr. Mobbi buys the land, he tries to get rid of them.
Plot: Once upon a time an old woman discovers a baby in her cabbage patch. She brings up the child and, when she dies, the boy, Toto, enters an orphanage. Toto leaves the orphanage a happy young man, and looks for work in post-war Milan. He ends up with the homeless and organizes them to build a shanty town in a vacant lot. The squatters discover oil in the land and Toto sees a vision of the old woman who gives him a magic dove that will grant him anything he wishes.

A Magical Feel-Good Film
I just recently watched De Sica’s Miracle in Milan and I must say it’s a tragedy this film isn’t more widely accessible. The film follows the curiously magical exploits of a grown up orphan who has just left his orphanage for the first time. His unstoppable optimism finally brings him to a shantytown outside of Milan. He helps to build the town into a thriving community, which soon comes under the fire of the property’s owner. Through a miracle from the heavens, our optimistic orphan sets to help his fellow vagrants with their lives and their homes.
I’m not normally one for dopey family films, so I was very happy to enjoy this. It’s not dopey, it’s not sappy and it’s not overly sentimental. The story is told with a gentle touch that De Sica is such a master with. The film is sweet, good-hearted and touching without ever relying on the corny or the melodramatic.
All in all, this film leaves you with a heart-warming feeling that only a poet like De Sica could give you. A sure recommendation.
This film is like a 1950-version of Ettore Scola’s Brutti sporchi e cattivi. Less sex and less realism, but a tale with great humanism and warmth. I wouldn’t call this a neo-realistic picture. It’s very sentimental and more like a fairy tale, and should probably be classed as a comedy, although it deals with serious matters (a little like Chaplin or 1930-comedy). Typical Italian though, very emotional, and hard to resist except for a stone cold person. The sentimentalism is a letdown, although this picture was not meant to be a realistic drama. It’s not a masterpiece like Umberto D or The Bicycle Thief. But it is a lovable and hilarious comedy, with good music.
