Il ballo delle illusioni
A dreamy and unforgettable evening: tailored dresses, poise, dance lessons and included in the price, even a prince charming
Cavalier Lanzafame, known as Don Carlos, descendant of Catherine of Aragon and founder of the Order of the Knights of Saint Teresa of Avila of Jesus, has a mission, which is to organize the Grand Ball of Debutantes in a frescoed room reminiscent of the Gattopardo, in Catania (Sicily).
Don Carlos, however, does it not only to live again the glories of a fallen aristocracy, but – it would seem – also as a job.
Each year, in fact, he looks for twelve girls who wish to experience the illusion of debut in society to help them realize their dream with tailor-made dresses, dance lessons and poise as well as a prince charming. When needed, he is helped by a stylist (Rosy) and a dance teacher (Fia).
