What is a restoration? From where and where it leads? The film tells how the Palazzo Papadopoli on the Grand Canal in Venice, painted by Giambattista Tiepolo, has been given a new life. Of how these spaces rich of history and experience have been re-interpreted and made available through a careful and meticulous restoration work. That is how history returns to be celebrated as a love ritual in which the saved and the savior embrace and merge to other centuries to tell.
