The adventures of the young Tano degli Ubaldini range from chivalric ideals, tormented love, ferocious battles and political intrigue. The central issue of the novel is the war between Guelfs and Ghibellines and the besiege of the castle of Montaccianico that the Lords of the Apennines tried to contain. This accurate portrait of twelfth-century Tuscan society also shows how characters of great humanity, passion and drama belong to every era.
