Italy, 1944. Sixteen-year-old Remo Gualandi flees from the Nazi troops who are about to execute him thanks to the help of a mysterious man, the Artist. He is saved but loses Marta, the girl he loves. He will look for her for the rest of his life. This is the story Remo tells his son much time later, in Bologna, 1964, the day the local team is about to win its seventh national championship. The Gualandi family also benefits from the wealth that is changing the country, but in the course of a few months the lives of the protagonists will be disrupted by a sequence of dramatic events in which the Artist plays a central role. Only thirty-three years later, in a city rocked by student revolt, all the questions will be answered.
