From January to March 1834, George Sand and Alfred de Musset are in Venice in full idyll. But the Venice novel will end in drama since Musset returns alone to Paris while Sand stays in Italy with her new lover Doctor Pagello. There will be a reconciliation and then new estrangements in this mythical liaison that this book brings to life through a subtle montage of the letters of the two lovers, those they send to each other but also those they write to their friends.
