Inspired, at some distance, by Molière’s Les Fourberies de Scapin, this ‘comic madness’ is set in present-day Naples. Ottavio’s and Leandro’s fathers are away, leaving their sons in the care of guardians - Scapino and Sylvestro. Ottavio marries Giacinta and when he learns that his father plans to ‘marry him off’ he seeks Scapino’s help. The spirit of the play is evident at the outset, when a slapstick sequence is accompanied by a crazy song made up from the menu at an Italian restaurant.
