Italy changed for good in 1994. Leonardo Notte is all too aware of this. He pushed hard to see Berlusconi get into Palazzo Chigi: he knows it's not easy to win power, but holding on to it verges on the impossible. By the same token, it seems equally impossible for Pietro Bosco to change: even now that he has an office at the Viminale, the Prime Minister's premises in Rome, he still can't cast off his old bad habits. Nor can he forget the only woman he has ever loved. And Veronica Castello has to decide who the man of her life is going to be. In the meantime, she has realised she no longer wants to be just a woman on the arm of powerful men. It is the start of her own push for power, and she will go on to become a member of Italy's parliament. In 1994 everything changes, yet nothing really changes: it is the year of restoration.
