A florentine Notary is worried about his beautiful wife's sterility. The sly Callimaco, a rich and fun-loving young man, organizes a plot to contact Lucrezia: pretending to be a French doctor he prepares a prodigious potion that cures the woman's sterility but kills the man that will sleep with her... The Notary agrees and a bum - Callimaco in disguise - is sacrificed to this cure! Lucrezia, overcoming the initial resistance, enjoys the "therapy" and keeps Callimaco as her steady lover!!
