Abstract:

A luxurious mansion right outside Milan is home to the Cantoni family. For three successful generations they have been running a prominent faucet-manufacturing business. Despite straightforward appearances, every member of the family has secrets and scars that they want to hide. The family rule is to sweep uncomfortable truths under the rug. Silence is also cast over the streak of madness that afflicts Bianca, the dynasty's matriarch. The newest addition to the family is Leonie Tardivaux, a penniless young French girl who marries Guido Cantoni, Bianca's only grandson. Leonie becomes so well-integrated into the family that she too holds firmly to the legacy that some facts are better left untold. And yet she is a consummate wife, doting mother, and talented career woman who guides the family business through the rough waters of the economic recession. Meanwhile, she harbors her own secret: Every year, for just one day, she leaves it all behind and drives off to a romantic hotel on Lake Como.
