In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya recounts her trip to Italy in 1983. Maya's Italian trip was made possible after she received a letter from the director of the Rome Opera inviting her to become the artistic director of the organization's ballet troupe. While in Italy, Maya lived at the house of Paola Belli, a soloist of the Rome Ballet who was interning in Moscow. For the summer festival in the Baths of Caracalla, Maya danced Raymonda. She also performed Petrushka, Phèdre, Les Biches, Isadora, The Nutcracker, Lady with the Dog, Swan Lake, Carmen Suite, and Bolero.
