During the summer of 1899 a young widow from Holland sets off for Italy. She’s on the way to meet Hugo, her husband’s assistant, who’s finishing working on an important archaeological dig. Hugo, who’s always been in love with Emilie, hopes that she accepts his marriage proposal. Staying in the same hotel, is the Italian captain, Aldo. The officer is fascinated by the pale and neurotic beauty of the woman. Emilie is also struck by the captain, with his chivalrous and seductive ways. For Emilie, it’s an explosion of an irrepressible, and fatal passion.
From the story "Sulla via della gioia" by Louis Couperus.
