Ettore, director of the Pinacoteca di Brera until 1934, expelled from the state administration following the approval of the racial laws and his closest collaborator, Fernanda, the first woman in Italy to be appointed director of a large museum, are the protagonists of this book. The stormy steamboat journey of a thousand Italian masterpieces, Ettore's escape to avoid concentration camps, Fernanda's months in prison and the rescue of the country's heritage from Nazi raids are intertwined with European cultural events on the background of the devastation of the Second World War.
