On 6 August 1941, the christening of Pierluigi, the eldest son of Enrico Chierici and Sara Pezzuto, born four days earlier, is scheduled in Genoa. Pierluigi is the first grandchild for both families, the Chierici and the Pezzuto, indeed he is the so-called first 'son of the She-wolf' as the Regime at the time 'calls babies'. With 'emphasis', the event is commemorated by inserting the shooting the mint new membership card of the G.I.L. (Gioventù Italiana del Littorio), which we do not see in this excerpt that begins with the second title: "the day of the baptism". We see all the preparatory acts for the ceremony in the church, which, however, is not filmed, perhaps because it is too dark inside. Pierluigi is filmed in the cradle, followed by the bath where mother Clara abruptly grooms him, while he is held firmly in the hands of his maternal grandfather Vittorio. Then comes the regulation weighing, dressing and finally he is combed with care and love - the so-called 'banana' topknot is a must. But here is another fundamental rite of passage for little Pierluigi, far more important than the fascist membership (and perhaps only equal to the religious rite), "the photographic investiture of Leichista"; on the part of the Chierici family, Pierluigi is filmed with the Leica camera around his neck, an omen of great loyalty to photography, and Pierluigi will be a good disciple of it.
