The dramaturgy is inspired by three diaries, preserved at the National Diary Archive in Pieve Santo Stefano. In the play there is only a part of the lives of the three diarists: the moment they fell, without putting their skills to use, is recounted.

A cruel gospel story links their stories: it is the parable of the talents, where those who always succeed in improving are rewarded and those who backslide are punished.
One of Italy’s first female doctors, a painter and a woman devoted to love and marriage, bury their talents underground: the play tells how and why.
