An adaptation of Carlo Goldoni, the play follows a fan dropped by a young lady from a balcony into the village piazza. It breaks. Her lover secretly tries to replace it. The new fan sets out on a journey from shopkeeper to seamstress to innkeeper to shoemaker to Baron and Count. Along the way, it stirs up misconceptions and gossip, sets off meddling and intrigue, unleashes pent-up grudges and jealousy, jumbles up the class structure and leads to fist fights and fainting fits by men and women alike.
