La mazurka del barone, della santa e del fico fiorone (lit.'The Mazurka of the Baron, the Saint and the Early Fig Tree') is a 1975 Italian black comedy film co-written and directed by Pupi Avati.[2] It is considered one of the most atypical commedia all'italiana films.[3]

The film marked Avati's return to filmmaking after a six-year absence, during which he worked as director of TV commercials.[4]
