«… now you have to save something more important.” “And what’s more important?” “Existence, mate. The meaning of existence.” The meeting between the painter Silvestro Lega and the woman from the red shale depicted in the painting The Visit is an opportunity to reconstruct the resurgent events through those of a character who, although of invention, has been the protagonist. William, animated by a fiery patriotic spirit, in the spring of 1848 leaves with the Tuscan university volunteers and, ten years later, volunteers among the Hunters of Garibaldi. But in the meantime, within him there has been a painful doubt that the purity of the resurgent ideals has been betrayed by the interests of the power that those ideals are used. He will confirm this during the enterprise of the Thousand and then at unification that took place, when he will understand that the liberation of the south of Italy was in fact the colonization of those lands by the Sabaudo Kingdom. He returned to the South to look for the woman he loves, witnesses the violence suffered by the submissive population and will be accused of connivance with the Brigantes.
