Synopsis

Rome, 1849. In the initial phase of the Roman Republic, Cristina, wife of the Marquis Arquati and supporter of the republic, is in love with the Garibaldian Giovanni Livraghi, a friend of the Barnabite friar Ugo Bassi. Among the fighting commoners, the figure of Angelo Brunetti, known as Ciceruacchio, and his twelve-year-old son emerge. Events precipitate after the Republicans are defeated by the French army, and the patriots Ciceruacchio, Bassi and Livraghi have to flee north to reach the insurgent Venice, following Garibaldi.
