Shot in the Tuscan countryside, "Il prato" examines the possibilities of realizing what could be termed Utopian ideals in the Marxist-agrarian context of developing a direct understanding of the land as a source of spiritual and material nourishment. The landscape of multi-towered San Gimignano is used as a focus of the conflicting emotions of three protagonists: an agricultural student, a young woman whose passion is political theatre (Isabella Rossellini), and a former law student whose real passion is cinema. Also starring Saverio Marconi, who had the lead role in the Taviani Brothers' "Padre Padrone" and Giulio Brogi, seen in their "Saint Michael Had a Rooster."
