The great actor and comedian Eduardo Scarpetta, star of the film and played by Toni Servillo, is the hit of the box office. Of humble origins, he established himself thanks to his comedies and his characters and became very rich and very famous. At the peak of his success, Scarpetta took a dangerous venture: parodying The Daughter of Iorio, the tragedy of the greatest Italian poet of the time, Gabriele D'Annunzio. Will he be able to win this match too? The film perfectly reconstructs an era and one of its major protagonists, capable of admirably communicating between public and private space in an unforgettable context - city and historical moment.
