The magic count synopsis

Stefano Pagliani is a very peculiar forty-something blogger. He comes to Rocchetta Mattei with his shy camera operator Arturo Leoni to shoot a video for his StoryTube channel about the Risorgimento. After Pagliani publishes the video, an anonymous comment strikes him: “You found many of the symbols within the Rocchetta, but you did not understand them”. Who is this person, and what did he mean? What are the mysteries surrounding the life of the Count, his Rocchetta and the electrohomeopathy, the cure that has made him famous around the world?
