The documentary tells the story of Leo Jacovacci: a boxer technically perfect, agile, intelligent and powerful. Leone spoke perfectly four languages. He was Italian and perhaps even fascist. Definitely not anti-fascist. On the evening of June 24, 1928, at the National Stadium in Rome, in front of nearly 40,000 spectators and the radio connection with the towns of Italy, Leone Jacovacci had gratuated European Middleweight Champion. Darling of the international public in the period where boxing was the sport par excellence. He had only one problem: he was a black Italian. Italian Half and Half Congolese.
