A tragic and mysterious story. The mad love between the poetess Lizzie Siddal and the Preraphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

A plunge into the decadent and corrupt London of the 1800s where licit and illicit mingle and amalgamate in a breath of passion and excess.

What is love? Overwhelming, poignant, indescribable? The absolute love that has always been sung, that cancels the ego and touches the creative act, capable of transforming the two and making the one visible?

Between dream and reality, life and death, we see the fascinating artistic movement of the Pre-Raphaelites and its protagonists: poet and painter Elizabeth Siddal and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

The legendary story of their love transports us into the meanderings of the human mind, through the endless contradictions that make life interesting.

The darkest shadows and the brightest lights. In life and paintings, the Pre-Raphaelite protagonists carved a never-ending and inspiring example of research.

In the Victorian setting we’ll feed on exceptional artistic achievements, emulated in framing, setting and lighting.

Through dialogues, drawn from Siddal's poems, we will investigate the gaze of the protagonists to understand the intimate processes that enabled the break from the past.
