A nice story with plots, impossible love stories and gorgeous clothes.
'Elisa di Rivombrosa' has given me the opportunity to see a nice story, similar to a fairy-tale. The plot may not be very complex and the meanings not very deep, but its purpose isn't to make you wonder what life is about and whether aliens do or do not exist. It's a story about love, fighting for an ideal, honor and dignity. The atmosphere that is created by costumes, locations and characters transfered me to my childhood when I was terribly fond of fairy tales.The costumes are really great and the actors are pretty handsome / beautiful. Though it's kind of predictable, the story of Elisa Scalzi (Vittoria Puccini) and the duke Fabrizio Ristori (Alessandro Preziosi) is an interesting one, raising above common Sud-American novels through the performance of the artists, the music and the great great costumes used for the series. So, if you are into fairy-tale-like kind of stories and love the Italian culture and history (and, of course, the magnificent Italian language), you shouldn't miss Elisa di Rivombrosa.
