A Medeci villa is home to a crackpot doctor who does experiments on peacock eggs, a nurse who greets people by doing a handstand in her skirt, an aspiring ballerina, and a few other odd characters. The villa also hosts a broad range of visitors, including a musician and a gay couple -- the younger gay blade wastes no time in chasing after the mansion's gardener. A countess who arrived at the villa throws a dinner party one day while a wedding is going on in another room (partially sponsored by a local refrigerator company) and while the two young gays are cavorting in the bushes. At the height of the frivolity, gangsters invade the scene and things turn downright nasty, even the doc shoots one of his peacocks. Tourism is just not what it used to be.
