Synopsis

The young Giacomo Casanova tries to forget the absence of his mother, who fled from Venice to be an actress, throwing himself into life as a libertine. When he falls under the charm of the ante-litteram feminist Francesca, who wants to free wives and courtesans from male oppression, Giacomo does everything to make her fall in love, resorting even to lies and disguises.
