Pasquale Rotondi, Superintendent of the Galleries and Works of Art of the Marche during the years of occupation and war, is the person who, obeying only his ethical conscience and his sense of responsibility, prevented the Nazis from getting their hands on paintings by Giorgione, Tintoretto, Piero della Francesca, Lotto, Mantegna, Donatello, Correggio, Caravaggio, Tiepolo, and many other masterpieces.

It is the story of an adventure, of precious places like the Ducal Palace of Urbino or the Rocca of Sassocorvaro, and of works of immense value, brought to safety by a handful of people without money and without tools.
