Nobody will be able to resist the loveable (and cheeky) Arlecchino and his companions as they take us to the city of love itself — Venice — where plots are laid, mayhem ensues, and all is well in the end! Filled with traditional commedia stock characters and scenarios, this fast paced comedy contains cases of mistaken identity, lost and reunited love, travelers in disguise, silly plots, saucy maids and greedy old men.
