Antonio moves from adventures to adventures, changing faces, cities and destinies, but always remaining faithful to himself and his desires; Antonio and his story blends in a perfect way with the times and customs, and even if his story is fiction, that is not the same for the setting, that is well-developed and believable. This is an example of the best historical novel, in which the reader will have the chance to enjoy the fictional story of the characters while experimenting the real history of those times.
Antonio’s first love is Franceschino, but then he will meet Rodrigo and Bassanio, and each one of these men will mark a moment in Antonio’s life; even that is part of the love story, cause in the long life of a man not always the first love will be the forever one… unless this is a romance, and well, the author wanted to preserve at least one of the unwritten rules of romance. So yes, Antonio will have to wait, and going through a lot of perils, but there is an happily ever after waiting for him.
