Due to a chance encounter with Mozart’s orchestra en route to Rome to perform for the Pope, Dante Gabriele – a talented young violinist, tutored by his uncle a parish priest – decides to abandon his family farm in southern Italy and join the musicians.
He is soon embroiled in a world of drugs, uninhibited sex, depraved aristocrats, love, treachery, white slavery and frustrated nuns in a remote mountain nunnery and his life is almost destroyed when his lover is taken from him.
Disillusioned with his fate and grieving over his lost love, Dante – now a fugitive from justice – eventually moves back to his old world and village where he is visited by devastating reminders of his past…….
Set in Venice and Rome in the 1700s.
