FERDINANDO AND CAROLINA
[FERDINANDO E CAROLINA]
In the dazzling court of 18th century Naples, young King Ferdinando (Sergio Assisi) is set to wed Carolina (Gabriella Pession), the sweet 16-year-old daughter of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria. As the monarchies of Europe hold their breath, something unexpected happens. King Ferdinando and Carolina share one common interest — a rollicking, orgiastic celebration of the senses — and plunge with gusto into the silken bed sheets to uphold their regal duties. As the court continues on with magnificent splendor, the sovereigns continue to reign, oblivious to revolutionary tides that are on the verge of tearing France apart and overtaking Europe.
