Summary

“Long ago and far away” in the Castle Corona lived King Guido, Queen Gabriella, and their children: Prince Gianni, Princess Fabrizia, and Prince Vito. They were all spoiled and bored and longed to be free of duties and obligations. In the nearby village, Pia and Enzio lived in a shabby hut with a miserly master. Pia and Enzio yearned to be free, to eat well, and to see the magnificent Castle Corona. One day there was a thief and a stolen pouch, and the lives of the royals and peasants soon became intertwined.
