Venice, 1763. Writer Lorenzo da Ponte (Lorenzo Balducci) is leading a very cavalier life. Originally a priest, his numerous affairs result in him being sent into exile in Vienna. Supported by his friend and mentor Giacomo Casanova (Tobias Moretti), da Ponte is introduced in Vienna to the King's favorite composer, Salieri (Ennio Fantastichini), and a newcomer named Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Lino Guanciale).
Seeing an opportunity to undermine his rival's ascension, Salieri tricks Mozart into hiring this unknown libertine as his librettist. But da Ponte's own nature and sentimental wanderings in Vienna only inspire the composer, and lead to one of Mozart's most bold and powerful compositions: Don Giovanni.
