Pierino medico della Saub (also spelled as Pierino medico della SAUB and Pierino medico della S.A.U.B.) is a 1981 Italian comedy film directed by Giuliano Carnimeo and starring Alvaro Vitali.
Alvaro Gasperoni, a Roman simpleton, after a school career characterized by the elementary school certificate obtained in Rome, the middle one in Frosinone, the high school one in Catanzaro and the high school one in Canicattì, obtained with relative difficulty a coveted degree in medicine in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia). that the more the schools were in the south, the less they were demanding to issue diplomas. Thanks to his father's powerful recommendation obtained by the P2 Masonic lodge, he soon began working as a doctor in a Roman hospital, surrounded by rampant but equally incompetent colleagues.
The head physician of the clinic states that "the value of a doctor is measured by the number of patients he has", and therefore Alvaro has all his relatives hospitalized to obtain the vice-primary chair, which he actually obtains only to be fired by the councilor for health who, disguised as a simple patient, had been admitted to check the progress of the health facility.
