I tonni non nuotano in scatola

Violetta, aka Vetta, panics when she discovers in the pocket of what she defines “the man with whom she shares the burden of existence” a small box containing an engagement ring. This because her ten-year love relationship with Federico is based on a main and imperative assumption: they will never get married because they both consider marriage “an hideous merchandise”. Above all she feels betrayed by him, they have always said that would never ever take such a step. Taken by a sudden fear and not wanting to face Federico and the consequences of his sudden U-turn on marriage, escape becomes the only option: to go away in order to at least take time.
