Three young friends: Angelo, Domenico and Salvatore, come to the attention of the Italian revolutionary movements of 1828, led by the liberal Giuseppe Mazzini. Since all three are living in a land full of poor and ignorant people: Sicily, they decide to leave for Piedmont, as all those who are stimulated by the ideals of Mazzini and Camillo Benso di Cavour. Mazzini, however, is forced into exile in England, after the failure of revolutionary movements in Italy and in France, so Domenico reaches him, while Angelo is currently in Piedmont, and then goes to France, attending nobles environments. Salvatore will see the birth of Italy because it is killed by Domenico after he has revealed him an important secret, and was believed by Domenico for a traitor to his country.
Spent time, Mazzini starts planning a new clash against the Emperor Napoleon III to re-establish control of Piedmont by the Italians and especially to snatch the Veneto to the power of Austria. The year is 1856 while Angelo fully supports the ideas of Mazzini, his partner Domenico is imprisoned in a fortress in Sicily. In fact, he was in it from 1848, after the failure of a new wave of revolutionary uprisings, which ended in disaster with the First Italian War of Independence. He is confronted with some political prisoners, including an earl, and manages to hold on until his release from prison, when already old Domenico went to France in Paris.
Angelo in the city and some followers of Mazzini, including his favorite Felice Orsini, had made an attempt on the life of the French emperor diurabte a night at the Opera, throwing bombs into the street. But the plan had failed and now, now that Domenico came into the prison of the city, witnessing the sentence ourt of Angelo and Felice. It is another year, after the unification of Italy, Domeni after many years goes in Sicily and after in Calabria, in 1862, where he meets the famous Mille led by Giuseppe Garibaldi, who are participating in the bankruptcy battle of Aspromonte.
