Plot summary

The film focuses the Decadentism, that develops in France and Italy in the late 19th century. Gabriele d'Annunzio is a more said poet, coming from the rural region of Abruzzo, precisely from the seaside town of Pescara. He is already famous for his aesthetic poetry, and he's also a journalist in Rome. There d'Annunzio begins to spend his days in a worldly, living purely in art and in full wealth. He hates democracy, even more mass, and look for the passion and pleasure in the rich ladies of the court, until he meets the noble Elvira Fraternali Leoni, who she's affectionately called "Barbara". This love arouses in d'Annunzio of the inspiration for the writing of his first great novel of the Decadentism: The Pleasure (Il Piacere).
