Volturno Belonore rules over his three sons – no doubt of that - and his young wife and his village, San Catello, in Lombardy. One evening in late summer 1911, a luxury car breaks down and its occupants ask Volturno for help... In return for which, they foretell he will find a fortune in priceless ore on his land. But the prediction turns out to be curse, and only Marzio, the youngest son, escapes. Unless you think that becoming a virtuoso at the expense of love is not part of the curse... A dizzying novel that plunges us into an Italy at the turn of the 20th century, against the backdrop of war and the rise of Fascism.
