A historical novel set in Tuscany in the 18th century, during the enlightened government of Pietro Leopoldo of Hapsburg Lorraine. Autobiographical recollections of the Grand Duchess Maria Luisa, his partner and confidante. "Vienna 1792. Maria Ludovica of Bourbon, the Spanish Infanta, for many years Grand Duchess of Tuscany and today Empress of the Holy Roman Empire, pieces impotently the rapid loss of life of her much loved consort, Pietro Leopoldo of Hapsburg, and from that instant commences almost frenetically to rekindle, one after the other, her innumerable memories of a life, still short, but intensely lived, beside the man who, since their first meeting got fascinated and conquered her, also to whom she had been a discrete and faithful companion. Public facts are weaved together with private thoughts, with joys and suffering, in a sequence of urgent events. The Empress unconsciously is aware, has always known, that she cannot endure for long (Editor's take note of: she will in fact pass away just two months later) after the loss of life of her hubby and therefore must rush to organise her recollections, to finally have the ability to give an answer to the most crucial question on her behalf: what does she really signify to him? Only a politics and dynastic website link, the mom of his children, friend and confidante or the woman he treasured notwithstanding everything?"
