Franca Iacona from San Giuliano is a lucky girl, she married the most coveted and richest bachelor in the city, perhaps even in Italy. Heir to an immense heritage, a man of great charm and style, Ignazio throws himself headlong into commercial adventures and clandestine affairs. But the young Franca does not remain hidden in the shadows: she is now a Florio. Beautiful, intelligent, undisputed queen of taste and refinement, she is the social star of every event. Her supposed friends envy her and every glance corresponds to a gossip, but she knows well that they would all give an eye to be in her place. Always at the forefront in welcoming kings, princes, tsars and kaisers, a close friend of artists, intellectuals and writers, a noble soul always willing to help those in need, an understanding and loving wife, she will however have a rather troubled life. Money, success and jewels will not repay her for the great sorrows that no mother would ever be able to accept and the slow economic decline of the empire inherited from her husband will accompany her towards an inexorable but dignified end.
