Abstract:

In Venice, during the spring of 1866, it is the last month of the Austrian occupation of the Veneto. The Italian government has forged a pact with Prussia, and another war of liberation in the ongoing Risorgimento is imminent. Countess Livia Serpieri, unloved by her collaborator-husband but sympathetic to the cause of freedom espoused by her patriotic cousin Roberto, meets Austrian officer Franz Mahler as she begs him to call off a duel with Roberto. She falls in love with young, philandering, and mercenary officer, the country marches to revolution, and her dedication to the cause wilts under her desire and obsession. Mesmerized by him, she betrays not only her husband and cousin, but the revolution, too, with tragic results.
