The preliminary results of the BeppoSAX observation of the radio-quiet AGN 1H0419-577 are presented. Despite its broad line optical spectrum, the intermediate X-ray spectrum (i.e. 2-10 keV) is flatter than typically observed in Seyfert 1s and no iron line is significantly detected. Even more intriguingly, a 1992 ROSAT pointed observation suggests a dramatic (ΔΓ ≃ 1) change in the spectral shape for Ε ≲ 2 keV. Such behavior is briefly discussed in the framework of our current understanding of Comptonization scenarios in the nuclear regions of radio-quiet AGN.
