The story opens at a country inn. A violent storm is raging, and two travellers, Count Alberto and Don Parmenione, take shelter. The Count is on his way to meet Berenice, his intended bride – agreed by contract, though they have never met. Martino brings in the luggage, and it is not noticed that two cases are identical. When he and his master eventually set off, they take the wrong case by mistake. When Don Parmenione opens his luggage he quickly discovers the error, but also finds Alberto’s passport and the portrait of a beautiful lady. He immediately decides to impersonate the Count and get the girl for himself.
