“A musical in grey-green notes”. Between concept and music, swimming in the grey-green notes of an adventurous passion set during D’Annunzio's Conquest Of Fiume where, for 16 months, everything seemed possible in that microcosm between the sky and the sea. From dynamic avant-garde art to decadent oration, from the most lustful voluptuousness to wild comradely goliardery, imbued with absinth and corroborated with white dust of cocaine. There, the two protagonists’ tragic fate springs and consumes. Renzi is a major in service for the “Impresa”, destroyed by war and by the following peace. Elettra is a seducing spy on command of "certain dark authorities" sent in Fiume to discover and, in case, undermine potential developments of the Exploit unwelcome by her mysterious referents. The story of an impossible love in the City Of Life. Will they be able to meet again in Trieste by the end of the “Impresa” to sail on and live a different existence as they candidly keep on longing for?
