"Manuale d'amore" It is a story about love seen through a kaleidoscope, whose changing colors represent "Falling in Love", " the Crisis", " Betrayal " and lastly " Abandonment ". The four chapters of the “MANUAL” are seen through the lives of four different couples, who like in a relay race will pass on the baton. Tommaso and Giulia go through all the phases of “Falling in Love”: the first date, the first kiss, the passionate sex, the living together, the marriage. Barbara and Marco face their first “Crisis” after years of love: will a son be able to help them get over it? Ornella experiences the drama of “Betrayal” possessing a unique strength as one 'global ' enemy Goffredo will describe “being Abandoned”. He is so unprepared to face this first great tragedy in his life, that he will seek help from a book on tape, that he will haphazardly have picked up in a bookstore, and whose reassuring title is called: "Manuale d'Amore".
