In Renaissance Italy, Bianca, a young lady from a good family, is old enough to get married. Her parents find her a fiancé to their liking: Giovanni, a rich merchant, young and pleasant.
The wedding seems to be going well, even if Bianca cannot hide her disappointment at having to marry a man she knows nothing about. But this was without knowing the secret held and bequeathed by the women of her family for generations: a “man’s skin”!
By putting it on, Bianca becomes Lorenzo and enjoys all the attributes of a young man of stunning beauty. She can now visit the world of men incognito and get to know her fiancé in his natural environment. But in her man’s skin, Bianca frees herself from the limits imposed on women and discovers love and sexuality.
