Abstract/Description:
Margherita Luti, the daughter of a hard-working but nai've baker, Francesco Luti, discovers her potential in La Panetteria da Francesco as she hones her craft of breadmaking, while also adding cakes and other dolces to her repertoire. Her simple life takes great turns as Margherita learns about new passions of hers: dolce, art, and love. After colliding with Raphael Sanzio, one of Rome's most prominent painters, she disguises herself as one of the elite and begins to live a life unknown and drastically contrary to the lifestyle she had always had. Set in the backdrop of Renaissance Italy, Rita soon opens the gates to her own inhibited desires as wells as confronting the expectations of her class and her role as a woman. Margherita and Raphael will have to decide whether or not their love for each other is greater than the social challenges they must face.
