Rome, 1800. Rugantino is a fool in love that rages eternal, though he is very unlucky in love stories and fruitful occasions. In fact he is denounced for trying to rob the elderly uncle of inheritance, apparently believed in the end of life, then Rugantino is beaten and sentenced to public torture of a squire. In fact Rugantino is in love with his young wife Rosetta, and this is the main character more than once, after having served the sentence, persecuted by justice and by the criminals. Rosetta however seems to love Rugantino, given his innocence and his ineptitude, but the young man, when he is accused of murder of an important lord of Rome, is sentenced to death. His fate is sealed, and after spending a few weeks in jail, Rugantino is beheaded.
