Anna and Marika are two young women who sometimes masquerade as lyric opera characters and news broadcasters, but who also give us some authentic everyday Italian conversation, and show us around the shops, parks, and eating places of Rome. These videos are generally geared to beginners, with some moments of fast talking by restaurant owners and the like.
Anna and Marika tell the first part of the story of Violetta and Alfredo, their falling in love and their decision to live in Paris together. But their happiness doesn't last...
Violetta writes a letter of farewell to Alfredo. He is miserable, but hears of a party where he is sure to see her. But there, things go from bad to worse. Alfredo ends up having to live abroad, and Violetta's illness gets much worse. Will they ever be able to embrace each other again?
