Toward the end of the 17th century, an apparently fragile portuguese noblewoman, with great intelligence and determination , strongly embraces the ideas of the revolution.C onscience of it’s limitations and weak points, she decides to fight for the affirmation of these ideals. In attempting to bring naples around to the revolutionary winds, blowing through europe at that time, at the age of 47, she ends up on the scaffold, and is killed along with hundreds of her collaborators under the fury of the Bourbon dynasty.
This woman is Eleonora Fimentel de Fonseca, poet, writer, journalist and courageous intellectual. The true meaning behind her rebellion has a value which cannot be traced back to ‘the rest of nothing‘. Freely adapted from Enzo Striano’s novel, by the same name.
From the book of the same name by Enzo Striano.
