This is the tale of a meeting between Lazzaro, a young peasant so good that he is often mistaken for simpleminded, and Tancredi, a young nobleman cursed by his imagination.

"Alice Rohrwacher’s supernatural, sun-drenched folk tale of the birth of modern Italy is as sublime as it is beautiful…With a rich, textured plot in which things are never quite what they seem, Rohrwacher paints a magical portrait of the decay of rural life, intertwining the past and the present in a work that is as exhilarating as it is sublime." - Time Out.
