VILLA SORRISO

   Guido Chiostergi, known as "The Magician," had returned from World War II with a big problem: he had fought on the wrong side

He arrives and finds nothing of what was his except for the house, a beautiful villa, the result of the trade of an ancient Armenian lineage.

So he starts digging a hole in the garden and in a short time transforms it into a swimming pool. Around it he planned to create a large, elegant, sumptuous dance hall.

The timing was undoubtedly right because, tired of the war, the entire city now did nothing but dance. They were dancing everywhere, even on the ledges.
