“Friends of my friends… good evening!”: thus began one of the most famous Rai TV programmes of the 1960s in which Angelo Lombardi and his Eritrean assistant Andalù enchanted viewers with poisonous snakes and exotic animals. The film reconstructs the character and the backstory to an icon of Italian television, as popular at the time as Mike Bongiorno.
