Set in the frenetic, fantastical Twenties, this romantic comedy begins as young Elizabeth Caracole (pronounced 'Crackle') is sent by her aristocratic parents to be finished in Florence with the family of a Papal count - and Papal dentist. There are no less than five sons, as well as the beautiful ambitious Vica, who has plans of her own. As does formidable old Principessa Arrivumale - for her nephew, Gian Galeazzo. The arrival of two Elgnlishmen sets in motion and intricate emotional dance which weaves around Italy and England, and includes a vivid and splendid cast of supporting characters.
