Nae Caranfil

Dolce far niente / Nae Caranfil

The year is 1816. Henri Beyle, former quartermaster in Napoleon’s army, has not yet assumed the pseudonym Stendhal. He leaves Rome and sets out for Naples. The young and promising composer Gioachino Rossini leaves Naples and sets out for Rome. Both get stuck in a small town on the border of the Kingdom of Naples, but in the meantime a beautiful fellow passenger from the coach takes the courtly Frenchman under her wing and invites him to stay at the hospitable house of her relative, the Count Nencini who lives there in exile. Rossini that favorite of the public, is put up at a local inn.The Napoleonic campaigns are over and on the surface a sleepy calm rules the land. It seems there is nothing to impede intrigues and affairs of love. But night resounds with the cries of rebels, burned in the forest by the king’s guard and subjected to the cruelest of punishments.
