Marianna belongs to a noble Palermite family of the eighteenth century. The destiny of her should be that of any young nobbildonna but the sordom condition of her makes her different: "The silence of her had seized her as a disease or maybe a vocation". They suggest so knowledge unknown: Le Marianna learns the alphabet, law and writes because these are the only communication tools with the world. You develop an acute sensitivity that drives it to reflect on the human condition, on the feminine condition, on the injustices of which the weakest are victims and of which she was a victim. Yet she Marianna you will perform the gestures of every woman, she will rejoice and suffer, she will know the passion.
